Description Alejandro Mota 2004-11-12 19:15:15 EST
Description of problem:

g++ fails to compile STL headers in trivial code when the -I flag is
used to include a file named debug/debug.h

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create trivial C++ program, e.g. x.cc:

#include <iostream>
int main(int ac, char* av[]) {
  return 0;

2. Create spurious debug.h file:

mkdir debug; cd debug; echo "" > debug.h; cd ..

3. g++ -I. x.cc

The contents of the debug.h file and its location is irrelevant, as
long as it resides in a directory called debug. 

Actual results:

Compilation failed with errors within STL headers.

Expected results:

Normal compilation.

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-11-13 04:36:30 EST
Eh, you of course cannot override any of the standard headers or headers they
are using, otherwise the behaviour is undefined.
If you say mkdir bits; echo > bits/types.h and use -I., nothing will compile
either.  Read the standards on what they say about this case.
Comment 3 Alejandro Mota 2004-11-13 04:45:59 EST
OK. I didn't realize that the standard headers would be overriden in
this way, since it didn't happen with previous versions of GCC (at
least in the code I compile). Thanks.
