Not sure if this is the right place to post stuff like this, so feel free to redirect me.

I’ve noticed that libc++ std::string exception messages are very basic compared to other standard libraries (eg libstdc++), with (as far as I can tell) everything throwing the exception message “basic string”.
Location where this message comes from: https://github.com/llvm-mirror/libcxx/blob/da6e915c73f231074dc88f8a952a8273da0ca06b/include/string#L609-L616

Example code:
int main(int argc, char** argv) {
  try {
  } catch (const std::out_of_range &e) {
    printf("e.what is: %s\n", e.what());
