Description Suseelan Bhargavi Sarin 2002-04-11 14:20:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.51 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.4.18 i686)

Description of problem:
I was trying to compile a 10 line test module and accidently entered gcc -Wall
-D -c test.c -o test.o instead of gcc -Wall -D MODULE -c test.c -o test.o.  The
program crashed requesting to make a bug report

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.take any c code, say junk.c
2. gcc -D -c junk.c -o junk.o


Actual Results:  bash-2.05# gcc -D -c test.c -o test.o
<command line>: macro names must be identifiers
gcc: Internal error: Segmentation fault (program cpp0)
Please submit a full bug report.
See <URL:http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/> for instructions.

Expected Results:  This was a silly error. It should have quited after
complaining about a NULL argument

Additional info:

bash-2.05# gcc --version
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2002-04-11 17:45:02 EDT
gcc --version doesn't tell much, gcc -v is better.
Anyway, this has been fixed since gcc-2.96-100.
