Compiler Error C2309

Compiler Error C2309

catch handler expected a parenthesized exception declaration

A catch handler has no parenthesized type.

The following sample generates C2309:

// C2309.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
#include <eh.h>
class C {};
int main() {
   try {
      throw "ooops!";
   }
   catch C {}   // C2309
   // try the following line instead
   // catch( C ) {}
}
