okay, so for now, there is no way to get it. Good to know...
> There is a bugzilla entry to get the env() call back, see
Thanks for the pointer. I don't know how involved it would be to get the
env() back. Given the last "activity" on that bug report was apparently
in 2006, it seems not to be fixed any time soon...
Another way to pass on the user exception would be to store it in the
return_value(). That's not advocated by the standard and therefore
probably non-portable, but the content of return_value() does not have
any sane semantics for an exception-return anyways. So in case that's
easier, it would probably be an interesting alternative. - Is there any
recommendation from the standard folks how to handle this without env()?
Oh, and do you have by chance an answer to the _tk_void in Any question?
