Lesson 14. Error Detection and Exception Handling Techniques

Exceptions are generated when an unexpected event occurs and causes your program to execute abnormally, disrupting its capability to proceed normally, if at all. These events are caused by hardware or software exceptions.

In this lesson, you will look at the three mechanisms of exception handling that Visual C++ 6.0 supports:

  • Structured exception handling (SEH) used mainly in C programs for Windows NT
  • C++ exception handling
  • MFC exception handling
