Description of problem:
The following code

#define R "r"


causes gcc-4.4.0-0.23.x86_64 (cpp-4.4.0-0.23.x86_64) to print the following error message when compiling with

gcc -E test.c --std=gnu99
# 1 "test.c"
# 1 "<built-in>"
# 1 "<command-line>"
# 1 "test.c"
test.c:3:1: error: invalid character '
' in raw string delimiter


It works without specifying the --std=gnu99 option though. 
It also works with the upstream gcc 4.4 and with 4.3 gcc versions on different platforms.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.gcc -E test.c --std=gnu99
Actual results:
Preprocessor error message

Expected results:
No error message

thanks for the quick response.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2009-03-11 14:52:51 EDT
BTW, if you want to avoid a raw-string literal (which would be
e.g. R"[bx]" or R"a[bx]a"), just separate R from " with some whitespace.
