Run-Time Function: Returns a pointer to C run-time exception information pointers appropriate for use in signal handlers established with SIGNALQQ or direct calls to the C rtl signal( ) routine.
The result type is INTEGER(4) on IA-32 architecture; INTEGER(8) on Intel® 64 architecture. The return value is the address of a data structure whose members are pointers to exception information captured by the C runtime at the time of an exception. This result value can then be used as the eptr argument to routine TRACEBACKQQ to generate a stack trace from a user-defined handler or to inspect the exception context record directly.
Calling GETEXCEPTIONPTRSQQ is only valid within a user-defined handler that was established with SIGNALQQ or a direct call to the C rtl signal( ) function.
For a full description of exceptions and error handling, see Compiler Reference: Error Handling.
