16.4.5 Constraints on programs [constraints] Handler functions [handler.functions]

The C++ standard library provides a default version of the following handler function ([support]):
A C++ program may install different handler functions during execution, by supplying a pointer to a function defined in the program or the library as an argument to (respectively): See also subclauses [alloc.errors], Storage allocation errors, and [support.exception], Exception handling.
A C++ program can get a pointer to the current handler function by calling the following functions:
Calling the set_* and get_* functions shall not incur a data race ([intro.races]).
A call to any of the set_* functions shall synchronize with subsequent calls to the same set_* function and to the corresponding get_* function.
