[PCC-372] -Wmissing-prototypes reports error for ANSI style function argument call Created: 27/Jul/11 Updated: 04/Sep/11
|Reporter:||Iain Hibbert||Assignee:||Anders Magnusson|
the following code example
when compiled with pcc -Wmissing-prototypes produces an error
foo.c:4: error: no previous prototype for `<pointer>'
(I think this is a fairly recent regression)

|Hm, I only get a warning. Which is correct, the function pointer has no prototype :-)|

Sorry yes, it is only a warning (I cut and paste from a command with -Werror above)
But is there something that might have changed recently that might have affected
this? I looked at the changelog and saw nothing significant, but the code (in NetBSD
libc/rpc/clnt_bcast.c) compiled fine a couple of weeks ago..

The reason this issue has shown up is my commit
which enabled passing -Wmissing-prototypes to ccom (where previously, it was
always silently dropped by the front end)
[ and for reference gcc (4.1.3) does not complain about this lack of prototype ]
the code where the prototype is (in <rpc/xdr.h>) claims in a comment that it
can't be properly prototyped as some abuse is going on with varying numbers
of arguments, I will look at that..

|I have repaired the code that caused this warning in NetBSD|
