[Rcpp-devel] experimental handling of uncaught exceptions

I don't know, this is only using RTTI which is part of the standard C++, and the abi namespace which is supposed to be cross compiler compatible. 

I don't have access to such platform myself, so I don't know if this theory passes the "in pratice" test

I'm fine with releasing. I'd like the external ptr stuff to be in rcpp, under a different name if you prefer. If we canoot make the implicit conversion to work, maybe we should forbid it by declaring the ctor explicit.

Is that something we need to #ifdef protect with something specific to
gcc/g++ for the cases where someone tries a different compiler ? As e.g. 
REvolution and Win64 -- we'd prefer to have the package work modulo this

Also inline 0.3.4 is on CRAN.  Time for a 0.7.1 release sometime this week,
maybe tomorrow, to finish the inline-back-to-inline transition?  Anything
pending from your end?


Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions.
