c++ runtime implementation

P: n/a
I am working on an operating system in C++ and I need counsels on what to do
in the kernel in order to be able to use some C++ features needing runtime
support (for example, exceptions and rtti). I know about this newsgroup's
charter and I know it is offtopic to ask such questions here. Since
alt.os.development is not satisfactory, do any of the people here have some
suggestions about where I could ask questions?

Thank you,
Jonathan

Neither of these features need any os-support. What makes you believe they
do?
I believe Lippman has written a book about how to implement support for C++
internal structures.
This book might be a good read, but you must do the search yourself.

I was under the impression that exception handling for example needed a
runtime support and that, since I am writing an operating system from
scratch
(just for fun), I needed to implement that runtime system myself. No?

"Inside the C++ Object Model"? Yeah, but it does not seem to answer my
questions.

Also use your favorite search engine for "Operating System C++"
or searching using your OS and "C++".

You could also contact the people who developed your OS and
also your compiler.
