Interesting paper, though the only argument he makes for use of exception
handling in embedded appears to be using libraries which use exception
handling, like boost. I can't imagine embedded devs use boost. The other
reason he offers "embedded software developed in C++ generally disables
exceptions, at the cost of reduced disciplined error handling through C++
exceptions" doesn't make any sense. Return codes require more disciplined
error handling, not less.
