Description Paul Springer 2000-01-13 18:59:14 UTC
When "#include <string.h>" is inside main(), egcs reports errors if the -O4
flag is set.  Example:  cc -O4 -c stringbug.c reports errors, where
stringbug.c is the following:

main()
{
#include <string.h>
char    *a = "hello";
char    b[100];

strcpy( a, b );
}

Comment 1 Jim Kingdon 2000-01-13 22:27:59 UTC
I can reproduce this with 6.1.  However, I'm not sure I have much
of a reaction beyond "well, include string.h from outside a function".
You could see if you get a better reception on the GCC mailing lists
at http://gcc.gnu.org/
