std::length_error::length_error

explicit length_error( const std::string& what_arg );
(1)
explicit length_error( const char* what_arg );
(2) (since C++11)

Constructs the exception object with what_arg as explanatory string that can be accessed through what().

Because copying std::exception is not permitted to throw exceptions, this message is typically stored internally as a copy-on-write string. This is also why there is no constructor taking std::string&&: it would have to copy the content anyway.

Parameters

what_arg - explanatory string

Exceptions

(none)

Inherited from std::exception
