<new> functions

Visual Studio 2015
 
nothrowset_new_handler

Provides an object to be used as an argument for the nothrow versions of new and delete.

extern const std::nothrow_t nothrow;  

Remarks

The object is used as a function argument to match the parameter type std::nothrow_t.

Example

See operator new and operator new[] for examples of how std::nothrow_t is used as a function parameter.

Installs a user function that is to be called when operator new fails in its attempt to allocate memory.

new_handler set_new_handler(new_handler _Pnew) throw();

Parameters

_Pnew
The new_handler to be installed.

Return Value

0 on the first call and the previous new_handler on subsequent calls.

Remarks

The function stores _Pnew in a static new handler pointer that it maintains, then returns the value previously stored in the pointer. The new handler is used by operator new( size_t).

Example

// new_set_new_handler.cpp  
// compile with: /EHsc  
#include<new>  
#include<iostream>  
  
using namespace std;  
void __cdecl newhandler( )  
{  
   cout << "The new_handler is called:" << endl;  
   throw bad_alloc( );  
   return;  
}  
  
int main( )   
{  
   set_new_handler (newhandler);  
   try  
   {  
      while ( 1 )   
      {  
         new int[5000000];  
         cout << "Allocating 5000000 ints." << endl;  
      }  
   }  
   catch ( exception e )  
   {  
      cout << e.what( ) << endl;  
   }  
}
