basic_ios::exceptions() alone isn't the answer. Consider:


All integers are valid as integers, and perhaps they're
all valid JDNs, but they aren't all within the JDN range
for class calendar_date.

Resolving the global issue would require analyzing each
extractor in lmi and guarding against every way it might
fail, in particular following Langer & Kreft's advice to
"care about the output variable of an extractor".

Most aren't worth considering, though, because they occur
in obsolete code that should instead be replaced. Those
in 'ihs_dbvalue.?pp' and 'ihs_pios.?pp' (e.g.) won't be
needed once we convert product databases to xml, and I
have plans to replace 'ihs_server7702io.?pp' as well.
You wouldn't know all these plans, so I've reassigned
this task to myself.

Unfortunately I have scant recollection of what is this ticket about so I'm not sure what exactly should be done here. I just wonder if there is a reason to not just use basic_ios::exceptions() to switch the streams in exception-throwing mode?

Thanks in advance for any additional details!

See 20070705T0108Z entry in 'DefectLog'.

Ensure that all extractors and inserters set stream state
correctly, and that stream state is tested correctly whenever
it should be, throughout all lmi code. Identify and resolve any
collateral issues.
