Yes, and this I learned from
"The annotated C++ Reference Manual" by Bjarne Stroustrup, 1990

'const' doesn't hurt.

Bjarne only uses pointers to catch C strings (still - no need to delete them):

throw "Help!";
catch( const char *str )
printf( str );
// DON'T delete str;

Otherwise - it is always reference.
