#250 closed defect (duplicate)

are Element::create() variants exception free?

The documentation states:

    /// \name Direct factory functions
    /// \brief These functions simply wrap the given data directly
    /// in an Element object, and return a reference to it, in the form
    /// of an \c ElementPtr.
    /// If there is a memory allocation problem, these functions will
    /// return a NULL ElementPtr, which can be checked with
    /// Element::is_null(ElementPtr ep).
    static ElementPtr create(const int i);

But the actual code doesn't seem to handle allocation failure:

Element::create(const int i) {
    return ElementPtr(new IntElement(i));

Am I missing something? Or does either the doc or the implementation need to be fixed?

I'm giving this to Jelte because I believe he should know this stuff best.

No, you are right. This part of the documentation is missing. No avoid reintroducing this specific one, I didn't create a separate branch for this, but added it to ticket #172 (it has the other change regarding exceptions in this factory function too).

Barring a 'added to other ticket' resolve status, I'm marking this as duplicate, which isn't exactly right, but as close as it gets. So please refer to #172 for any followups.
