Description David Binderman 2005-02-07 08:57:26 EST
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package pvm-3.4.5-1 from 
Redhat Fedora development tree.

The compiler said

../../src/pvmlog.c(492): warning #267: the format string requires
additional arguments

The source code is

        for (i=0; i < 10 ; i++ )
                pvmlogprintf("[%x/%c]", em[i]);

I agree with the compiler. Suggest code rework. Has this code ever
been tested ?

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

Yes, the code has been tested - the line causes no problem if executed.
Will fix in next version to avoid compiler warning.

Good comedy.

Doing printfs on random stack contents is probably one of the oldest
C mistakes in the book.

>Will fix in next version to avoid compiler warning.

Excellent. Look forward to seeing the results.
