<stdexcept>

Defines several standard classes used for reporting exceptions. The classes form a derivation hierarchy all derived from class exception and include two general types of exceptions: logical errors and run-time errors. The logical errors are caused programmer mistakes. They derive from the base class logic_error and include:

  • domain_error
  • invalid_argument
  • length_error
  • out_of_range

The run-time errors occur because of mistakes in either the library functions or in the run-time system. They derive from the base class runtime_error and include:

  • overflow_error
  • range_error
  • underflow_error
