Description Jesse McCrosky 2003-09-25 12:34:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Attempting to compile some C++ code produces the following message:

SERP_FISH.cc: In function `int main(int, char**)':
SERP_FISH.cc:143: Internal compiler error in find_function_data, at function.c:330

lines 142 and 143 of SERP_FISH are:

142: new SERP_Filter<FishSignal,Fish_Observation,Fish_Observer>

143: (particleCount, dt/(double)s_e_e, rho, Z, (int)(log(DBL_MAX)/log(Z)),

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc (GCC) 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)

How reproducible:

Actual Results:  Failure with error as reported in description.

Expected Results:  It should have compiled ;)

Additional info:

I can't send you complete source, but if you need more information, I can send
you portions of it. Let me know.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2003-09-29 03:49:35 EDT
Best would be preprocessed source for this file (ie. what gcc -save-temps
creates). If that is impossible to send, please try more recent gcc first
(e.g. from ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/beta/taroon/en/as/i386/RedHat/RPMS )
and if the problem persists, try to distill from SERP_FISH.ii minimal
part which still reproduces the problem and you can send to us).
You can mail it to me privately if you don't want anybody else to see the
Comment 2 Jesse McCrosky 2003-10-06 12:47:31 EDT
I have isolated the problem.  The line the error refers to in my source is
calling the constructor for SERP_Filter.  SERP_Filter is templated on Signal. 
The class used as Signal has an integer member called "D".  The SERP_Filter
class has an member "double estimate[Signal::D]" which is what is causing the
problem.  Hardcoding the array size worked around the problem.  

Note: I have reproduced the problem using both the taroon and cvs versions of
gcc.  I have e-mailed the .ii file to Jakub.  If anyone else would like to work
on this bug, please contact me and I will send you the code.  I prefer not to
publicly post it.
Comment 3 Louis-Philippe Gagnon 2003-10-30 22:11:23 EST
Just hit this bug, googled and came across this bug report. I`ve reduced my code
to the smallest possible size, maybe this will help someone.

$ cat test.cpp

class Base {
public: virtual void member();
template<class F> void function(F func) {
    class Derived: public Base {
        void member() {
            new Derived(*this);
    new Derived;
void instantiate(){

$ g++ -c test.cpp

test.cpp: In member function `void function(F)::Derived::member() [with F = 
test.cpp:10:   instantiated from here
test.cpp:7: Internal compiler error in find_function_data, at function.c:330
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.

Comment 4 Richard Henderson 2004-10-04 00:31:17 EDT
Jakub didn't save the .ii file from the original problem into the PR
as he ought to have done, but I can confirm that the second problem
persists through to gcc 4.0.  Pushed upstream to
