[PCC-380] cpp: EBLOCK sync error Created: 16/Sep/11  Updated: 06/Aug/12

Status: Resolved
Project: pcc
Component/s: C preprocessor
Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: None

Type: Bug Priority: Major
Reporter: Iain Hibbert Assignee: Anders Magnusson
Resolution: Fixed Votes: 1
Environment: NetBSD/i386

File Attachments: File mesa.c    

The following code, reduced from MesaLib code (src/mesa/drivers/dri/r200/r200_swtcl.c)

#define warning(msg, ...) do { \
    dprint((msg), ## __VA_ARGS__); \
} while(0)

#define WARN(fmt, ...) do { \
    warning((fmt), ## __VA_ARGS__); \
} while(0)

static void foo(int d)

when passed to pcc -E fails with an "EBLOCK sync error"

(the original code was more complex and runs out of macro
space but that may be a secondary issue)

Anyway cpp does not support the (GCC extension) syntax where in
        , ## __VA_ARGS__ )
the comma is "swallowed" by the ## when __VA_ARGS__ happen to be empty

This seems to have been resolved sometime during the time being.

this still occurs with pcc as of today, on i386 at least.. just to be sure (because I recall it was difficult to pin it down; I think whitespace is significant) I attach the exact code file I am using..

% pcc -E mesa.c

static void foo(int d)
mesa.c:13: error: EBLOCK sync error
% pcc --version
pcc 1.1.0.DEVEL 20120731 for netbsd-i386

Yetch, it was the newline inside the varargs arg list that was the evil spot. Thanks, fixed now.
