Unexpected paths?
What, by definition, are 'unexpected paths' ? From what I can tell, the manual does not say. I am speculating that, in the case of an if () {} else {} construct, the 'if' path is the 'expected' one and the 'else' path is the unexpected one. Is this the case? If so, where does this terminology come from?

    Hello dmf

    An unexpected path occurs when an access violation (e.g. dividing by zero, access violation, etc.) is not caught in a try-catch block. Therefore if your source code does not contain the try-catch protection, and you receive an access violation, C++Test will report an unexpected path.
