c++ - function-level try blocks unsupported

DMC doesn't seem to support function-level try blocks, as ISO-C++ says (try
to compile code below).  I tried with BCC 5.5.1 (which makes a big fuss with
its "full" <g> ANSI compliance), and it's not supported, either.  It works
fine with GCC 2.95.2 or later...

For the curious: BCC says "Test::Test() declared outside its class".  Oh
well...  :)

class Thrower

Thrower::Thrower() throw(int) { throw 1; }

class Test
{
    public:
        Test() throw (int);
    private:
        Thrower t;
};

Test::Test() throw(int)
try
:t()
{

}
catch(int x)
{
    throw x+1;
}
