Description ftaylor 1999-08-31 13:08:53 EDT
rpcgen -C -M -N -l foo.x -o foo_clnt.c

generates an uncompilable c file with syntax errors

Same file works fine on Solaris 2.6

If you cannot duplicate this, I can send you test data
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-31 13:54:59 EDT
Please send test data. Note that the rpcgen on solaris has different
syntax because of the dynamic port binding etc.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-31 13:57:59 EDT
*** Bug 4807 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

the header file generated with:

rpcgen -C -M -N -h cc.x -o cc.h

contains function definitions that are inconsistent with

rpcgen -C -M -N -c cc.x -o cc_xdr.c

functions that take 'pointer to foo' as an argument
in the .c file are defined in the .h file as taking 'foo'
as an argument

Same stuff works well on Solaris 2.x, and has for years

I can send a sample if necessary.

Please send sample. I'm going to coalesce these two problems.
Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 1999-09-22 23:21:59 EDT
