Description Need Real Name 2001-05-10 21:57:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22.c4eb i686)

Description of problem:
g++ --version

When it compiles a file including <glade/glade.h>, it reports error as

g++ -c -g -Wall `gnome-config --cflags gnome gnomeui libglade` main.cpp
In file included from /usr/include/glade/glade.h:50,
                 from main.cpp:2:
/usr/include/glade/glade-xml.h:32:9: malformed #pragma directive
make: *** [main.o] Error 1

The offending pragma (with context) is

#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {
#pragma }
#endif /* __cplusplus */

The file compiles fine using g++ version 2.95.2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. write a simple program including <glade/glade.h> as follows:
// test.cpp
#include <gnome.h>
#include <glade/glade.h>

int main(int argc, char * argv[])
return 0;

2. compile as follows:
g++ `gnome-config --cflags gnome gnomeui libglade` test.cpp


Actual Results:  In file included from /usr/include/glade/glade.h:50,
                 from test.cpp:2:
/usr/include/glade/glade-xml.h:32:9: malformed #pragma directive

Expected Results:  compile successfully

Additional info:

It might be a problem of the header file.  The pragma is weird anyway.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-05-11 10:52:03 EDT
The #pragma is really bogus first of all, so I don't think the preprocessor
was wrong to moan about it.
Anyway, the new preprocessor (present in cpp-2.96-72 and above, including
e.g. the one shipped in 7.1 distribution) will not moan about it.
