Hello all,
    Can anyone point me to any documentation (or information) about the
way GCC handles C++ exceptions? More specifically, the format it uses
for the exception tables in generated code. I've looked at files
compiled with g++ and gcc -fexceptions and the format of the table is
not easily deciphered. Also,
can these tables be patched in at runtime? I suppose they
need to be for dynamically linked object files.

    I've checked the gnu.org site but didn't have any luck finding such
specific information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
