Description Sanjeeb K Sahoo 2001-11-27 18:37:28 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows NT; DigExt)

Description of problem:
g++ does not like extra parenthesis in cast expression like (A)(B()).
It compiles this expression (A)B()  though.
A and B are two user defined types.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc 2.96

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Write a file test.cpp with contenct as follows...
///////////////start of test case//////////////////
class B{};
class A{
        operator B(){ return B(); }

void foo(B b) {}

void foobar() {
        foo ( (B) A()  );
        foo ( (B)(A()) ); //does not compile in g++
/////////////end of test case///////////
2.compile using g++ v2.96 as follows...
g++ -c -

Actual Results:  test.cpp: In function `void foobar ()':
test.cpp:11: parse error before `)'

Expected Results:  It should have compiled without any errors.

Additional info:

It compiles with Sun CC5.0, HP aCC3.30 without errors.

True in 3.2 but I'm not sure its a C++ bug
Comment 2 Richard Henderson 2004-10-01 20:57:52 EDT
Fixed with gcc 3.4 c++ parser rewrite.
