Defined in header <stdexcept>

Defines a type of object to be thrown as exception. It reports errors that result from attempts to exceed implementation defined length limits for some object.

This exception is thrown by member functions of std::basic_string and std::vector::reserve

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 a standard library class derived from std::exception is not permitted to throw exceptions, this message is typically stored internally as a separately-allocated reference-counted 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

May throw std::bad_alloc

Inherited from std::exception
