The thing about exceptions is that I rarely use them, so I never spent
much time thinking about it.. I've seen a number of implementations,
CEGUI seems to be one that supports most cases, but the syntax to bind
them deviates too much from the way exception are defined on a
standard header, which is why I hesitate about merging it into
If there's a way to add them using hooks, I'd love to take a look at
that.. in fact I should probably get all the options together, maybe
on a wiki page, and get opinions from the users to determine which one
sorry for not providing a solution on this.. most of the tolua++
development is based on my real world usage of it, so some areas are
lacking (C arrays come to mind)..
