Description tschenk 1999-09-19 22:36:22 UTC
There is a problem with the aupvlist.h header file when
compiling C++ code.  The error in the file results in an

  parse error before '}'

message whenever this file is included.  This file is
included in audiofile.h and therefore affects any files that
use this header file and audiofile.h is included in esd.h,
which means anything developed using the esound libraries in
C++ are also affected.

The error results from the extern "C" {} and ifdef construct
used in the header file.  The closing curly brace is
included twice at the end of the file.  Removing the second
instance of the following:

#ifdef __cplusplus
#endif /* __cplusplus */

from the end of the file solves the problem.  This error was
discovered while attempting to compile the FreeAMP version
1.3.1 player.

Here is a simple patch to fix this error.

The version of audiofile that comes with RHL 6.1 does not have this
