Description vadim 1999-12-20 19:39:38 UTC
%if blabla
%include file
will die (because it'll check if it's EOF and we're still in IF, but won't
check whether this file is the last one. Patch is obvious)

comments in %included file are not comments at all (i.e. if something is
inside comment, which is macro, it'll get processed)

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-01-31 16:11:59 UTC
Here's a workaround for 1:

# define arch specific variable
%{expand: %%{global} _is_%{_target_cpu} %%{nil}}

# include file only if is_blabla is defined (i.e. on arch blabla)
%{?is_blabla: %include file}

There is no work-around for 2) since macro expansion is entirely context free.
Moreover, you will find that there is a limit of the size of the expansion
buffer (8Kb) on the contents of file.
