Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427647
implicit definition of strptime because of missing define
Last modified: 2017-04-06 06:28:43 EDT
Description of problem:
strptime is only defined if #define __USE_XOPEN as can be seen in <time.h>
as per the documentation, since glibc2 this function is only available if
_GNU_SOURCE or _XOPEN_SOURCE had been defined.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download source rpm
2. rebuild in a 64bit architecture (x86_64 or ppc)
