signgam is in user's name space

 Description  « Hide
Code similar to

#include <math.h>
char signgam[] = "deadbeef";
int main(void){
   double d = lgamma(1.5);
  return 'e' == signgam[1];

gets many errors. The problem is, signgam is the sign of gamma to some
lgamma() functions and violates the user's name space.

The math.h header file is property of the system (fedora) and not the compiler, so there is actually nothing that can be done about this in the compiler. Sorry.
