MEC++ Errata Updates

I just got word that MEC++ is up for another reprint, so I took the
opportunity to update the errata list. There are only three new entries:

DATE DATE
REPORTED WHO PAGES WHAT FIXED
-------- --- ----- ------------------------------------------------ --------
! 4/19/04 cc 50 The para after the first code fragment says that 7/24/04
the window will always be destroyed, even if an
exception is thrown, but this this true only if
the exception is caught. If it's never caught,
there is no guarantee that local objects will be
destroyed.

! 6/ 9/04 jw 70 In 3rd para, bad_typeid isn't thrown when a null 7/24/04
pointer is used with dynamic_cast, it's thrown
when a null pointer is dereferenced in a call to
typeid.

Interesting Comments:

DATE
REPORTED WHO PAGES WHAT
-------- --- ----- -----------------------------------------------------------
1/18/04 sdm Item 34 A topic related to this Item is how to link object code
generated from different C++ compilers. For one take on
that topic, consult Karsten Hoof's February 2004
CUJ article, "GNU & Native Compilers." For another,
see Joe Goodman's March 2004 CUJ article,
"Interoperability & C++ Compilers."
