Description David Binderman 2005-02-28 09:48:25 EST
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package logjam-4.4.1-3 from 
Redhat Fedora Extras development tree.

The compiler said

tools.c(217): remark #592: variable "encoding" is used before its
value is set

The source code is

        const gchar *encoding;
        GError *err = NULL;

        command = gtk_entry_get_text(GTK_ENTRY(entry));
        if (!jam_doc_insert_command_output(doc,
                command, encoding, &err, win) && (err)) {

Suggest initialise local variable "encoding" before first use.

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

Gcc spit this out? I don't recognize that as a gcc error, it sounds
like ICC being too sensitive.

If gcc wasn't used to compile this, you need to take that bug back to
the upstream maintainer, which, in the case of logjam, is Evan Martin

If gcc was used, feel free to reopen this bug.

>Gcc spit this out? 

Nope, Intel 8.1, but gcc will complain about the line
by adding "-O2 -Wall" to gcc command line.

>it sounds like ICC being too sensitive.

Good comedy. 

In fact, reading definately un-init memory is one of the oldest
mistakes that C programmers.

>If gcc was used, feel free to reopen this bug.

See above - gcc can complain about this bug.

gcc -Wall warnings cleaned up

OK, taking the time to look at this one.

Recompiled logjam 4.4.1 with -O2 -Wall.

The following errors were thrown by the compiler:
cmdline.c: In function `command_dispatch':
cmdline.c:667: warning: 'acc' might be used uninitialized in this function
checkfriends-gtk.c: In function `cf_float_destroy':
checkfriends-gtk.c:258: warning: unused variable `cfm'
checkfriends-gtk.c: In function `cf_dock_destroy':
checkfriends-gtk.c:280: warning: unused variable `cfm'
checkfriends-gtk.c: At top level:
checkfriends-gtk.c:295: warning: 'cf_dock_setup' defined but not used
menu.c: In function `menu_make_bar':
menu.c:443: warning: unused variable `i'
tools.c: In function `tools_insert_command_output':
tools.c:212: warning: 'encoding' might be used uninitialized in this function

All of these errors are fixed in the attached patch.
