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

Classes

domain_error ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report a domain error.
invalid_argument ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report an invalid argument.
length_error ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report an attempt to generate an object too long to be specified.
logic_error ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report errors presumably detectable before the program executes, such as violations of logical preconditions.
out_of_range ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report an argument that is out of its valid range.
overflow_error ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report an arithmetic overflow.
range_error ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report a range error.
runtime_error ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report errors presumably detectable only when the program executes.
underflow_error ClassThe class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report an arithmetic underflow.
