Description Bill Pemberton 1999-02-17 01:54:02 UTC
Using the following C program:

---------CUT HERE----------

#include <stdio.h>

#ifdef BUGTEST
FILE *blah = stderr;
FILE *blah;


#ifndef BUGTEST
  blah = stderr;

   fprintf(blah, "blah blah blah\n");


---------CUT HERE----------

Will yield:

localhost: /tmp (wfp5p) > cc -DBUGTEST temp.c
temp.c:4: initializer element is not constant
localhost: /tmp (wfp5p) > c temp.c

I'm not sure if this is the right way to fix it, but here's
a fix:

*** stdio.h.orig        Tue Feb 16 20:23:22 1999
--- stdio.h     Tue Feb 16 20:27:56 1999
*** 115,120 ****
--- 115,125 ----
  extern FILE *stdout;          /* Standard output stream.
  extern FILE *stderr;          /* Standard error output
stream.  */

+ #define stdin _IO_stdin
+ #define stdout _IO_stdout
+ #define stderr _IO_stderr

  /* Remove file FILENAME.  */
  extern int remove __P ((__const char *__filename));
