Description David Juran 2002-08-10 17:21:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
If there is a directory in the include path named the same way as an
include-file, the directory will be tried to be included. 
 If there exists a directory bar which contains the file bar and in your c-file
you have the directive 
#include <bar>

If you now try to compile with the command 
g++ -I. -Ibar
cpp0 will find the _directory_ bar and give up without including the _file_ bar/bar

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
create a file bar/bar

now create a file foo.cc which contains the line
#include <bar>

g++ -I. -Ibar foo.cc


Actual Results:  g++ -Wall -I. -Ibar foo.cc
foo.cc:1:15: bar is a directory

Expected Results:  I would like the directory to just be skipped (since I can't
be included anyway) and that the file bar/bar would be included instead.

Additional info:

I haven't checked the standard but this is how aCC on HP-UX does...
