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.

HI all, in the interest of studying for the use of Exception handling in Embedded space, this paper is very useful (thanks to Bjarne pointing me to it)
Low-Cost Deterministic C++ Exceptions for Embedded Systems

The general conclusion is  that EH as it is  is suitable for embedded systems and it only needs to be an   implementation detail. This is extremely helpful to our interest.

At the Prague F2F SG14 meeting, I will present this paper if there is a free slot on Friday morning's SG14 meeting  if the authors cannot be present.
However, James Renwick has agree to come on our March 11 monthly SG14 call to discuss this.

I have already presented this paper at MISRA C++ so a wider group might be interested in these results.
