Example

#include <memory>
#include <iostream>
int main()
{
    std::shared_ptr<int> p1(new int(42));
    std::weak_ptr<int> wp(p1);
    p1.reset();
    try {
        std::shared_ptr<int> p2(wp);
    } catch(const std::bad_weak_ptr& e) {
        std::cout << e.what() << '\n';
    }
}

Output:

std::bad_weak_ptr
