Description neal nuckolls 2002-03-12 18:06:50 EST
Description of Problem:
All C preprocessors prior to 2.96 that I've ever used will warn
whenever a cpp macro is redefined to a "non-trivial" different value.
Not 2.96 .  The 2.96 cpp does not produce a warning for this
unless you set the -pedantic option.
This is inconsistent with the cpp documentation which explicitly says
that cpp macro redefines produce a warning period.
Please fix.

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

How Reproducible:
The cpp in the i386 C toolchain that came with RedHat 6.0
does not have this problem.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a file containing the two lines:
#define	FOO	1
#define	FOO	2
2. compile it on redhat 7.2 "cc -c t.c" -- no warnings
3. compile it on an older redhat release like 6.2, viola warnings.
(cpp -dumpversion on that system says "egcs-2.91.66").
