Compiler Error C2319

'try/catch' must be followed by a compound statement. Missing '{'

A try or catch block is not found following the try or catch statement. The block must be enclosed in curly braces.

The following sample generates C2319:

// C2319.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
#include <eh.h>
class C {};
int main() {
   try {
      throw "ooops!";
   catch( C ) ;    // C2319
   // try the following line instead
   // catch( C ) {}
