The article mentioned in the previous post does it by doing divisions in a function that checks for a zero divisor and throws an exception if it detects one. If you don't want to use such a function, it gets rather complicated.

If you're running on Windows, you need to handle the structured exception STATUS_FLOAT_DIVIDE_BY_ZERO or STATUS_INT_DIVIDE_BY_ZERO. If you're running on Linux, you need to handle the POSIX signal SIGFPE. You can also handle the use of a bad pointer with these techniques. The handler that receives the structured exception or POSIX signal can throw a C++ exception, which you can then catch in the usual way.

The following article goes into the details. But because it also describes a thread framework, you'll have to sift through it to extract the specific code that you need. In particular, see the sections "Receiving a Windows Structured Exception" and "Receiving a POSIX Signal".
