Description Sysoltsev Slawa 2003-01-17 12:05:45 UTC
Description of problem:
in sources in file evolution-1.0.8/mail/mail-callbacks.h:121 is line:
void forward_messages      (CamelFolder *folder, GPtrArray *uids, gboolean inline);

If you supposed 'inline' here as identifier it is restricted by C compiler as 'inline' is 
the keyword (see clause 6.4.1 of C standards, paragraph 1). According paragraph 
2, clause 6.4.1 of C standards you can't use identifiers that are recognized by C 
compiler as keywords.

GNU C compiler doesn't emit the error because bug in compiler or maybe 
undocumented feature ( I mean inline parameters, as ridiculous it wouldn't sound. 
However I haven't found documentation on it). Seems it treats 'gboolean inline' 
as '<type> <modifier>', i.e. as declaration without parameter name. You can 
ensure in it adding any identifier name i.e. something like 'gboolean inline 
somename'; it won't expose error too with gcc.

I've never heard about inline parameters, so I suppose you just used invalid name 
for parameter. To be correct (and therefore increase Linux portability) you should 
another identifier in this declaration.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I'm afraid the error cannot be shown with GNU C compiler.

Actual results:
Compilation errors with custom compiler.

Expected results:
Successfully built package.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-17 16:04:03 UTC
We don't support recompiling with compilers other than the one we ship with.  
You might report the bug upstream at and they may
care more about non-gcc compilers.
