Description Ben LaHaise 2001-09-20 02:31:41 UTC
Compiling the below program produces a warning when it should not.  This
bug is also present in the gcc3 package.  Cheers!

[bcrl@toomuch ~]$ gcc -Wall -o /dev/null gcc-warning.c 
gcc-warning.c:4: warning: parameter has incomplete type

... gcc-warning.c ...
struct iocb;
struct foo {
	void (*bar)(struct iocb);

It is true that ISO C99 allows incomplete types in function prototypes, on the
other side I don't think it forbids such a warning. I'll ask Joseph what he
thinks about it.
