The following program catches exceptions properly when compiled for 32
bits(-mn), but just prints 'abnormal program termination' for 16 bit
compiles (-ml).

#include <stdio.h>
int main(int argc,char *argv[]){
    try {
        throw "here it comes";
        }
    catch (const char *e) {
        printf("Exception: %s", e);
        }
    catch (...){
        printf("oh oh");
        }
    return 0;
    }

How about a quick fix?

I just ran it (under XP) compiled as:

and it works as expected. I don't know why it isn't working for you.

It is failing under Win98 SE. With lots of (other) problems reported for XP,
the chances of me switching over to XP immediately are slim.

And I know you don't have Win98! What to do now?

Walter, thanks for solving the problem. Removing -Nc from the CFLAGS does
make the program work as expected.
