Description Wagner T. Correa 2002-08-07 03:49:11 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529

Description of problem:
When there is a directory in the include path whose name is the same of a
standard header, and a program tries to include the standard header, g++ will
fail to compile the program.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a directory called memory.
2. Compile the file below.

#include <memory>

Actual Results:  [wtcorrea@neon17 wtcorrea]$ g++ -I. -c x.cpp 
x.cpp:1:18: memory is a directory

Expected Results:  g++ should ignore the memory directory, and look for a file
called memory in the include path.
