exception::bad_exception in C++ with Examples

  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2020

Standard C++ contains several built-in exception classes, exception::bad_exception is one of them. This is an exception thrown by unexpected handler. Below is the syntax for the same:

Header File:

include<exception>

Syntax:

class bad_exception;

Return: The exception::bad_exception returns a null terminated character that is used to identify the exception.

Note: To make use of exception::bad_exception, one should set up the appropriate try and catch blocks.

Below are the examples to understand the implementation of exception::bad_exception in a better way:

Program 1 :




// C++ code for std::bad_exception
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
  
using namespace std;
  
void func()
{
    throw;
}
  
void geeksforgeeks() throw(bad_exception)
{
    throw runtime_error("test");
}
  
// main method
int main()
{
    set_unexpected(func);
  
    // try block
    try {
        geeksforgeeks();
    }
  
    // catch block to handle the errors
    catch (const bad_exception& gfg) {
        cout << "Caught exception "
             << gfg.what() << endl;
    }
    return 0;
}
Output:
Caught exception std::bad_exception

Program 2 :




// C++ code for std::bad_exception
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
  
using namespace std;
  
void gfg()
{
    throw;
}
  
void A_Computer_Science_Portal_For_Geeks()
     throw(bad_exception)
{
    throw runtime_error("test");
}
  
// main method
int main()
{
    set_unexpected(gfg);
  
    // try block
    try {
        A_Computer_Science_Portal_For_Geeks();
    }
  
    // catch block to handle the errors
    catch (const bad_exception& a) {
        cout << "Caught exception "
             << a.what() << endl;
    }
    return 0;
}
Output:
Caught exception std::bad_exception
