Description John Ellson 2003-06-05 16:22:21 UTC
Description of problem:
Code generated with "bison -y" fails with g++
The problem originates from the fragment: /usr/share/bison/yacc.c:1116
    #if defined (__GNUC_MINOR__) && 2093 <= (__GNUC__ * 1000 + __GNUC_MINOR__)
      __attribute__ ((__unused__))
The "__attribute__ ((__unused__))" feature is supported by gcc, but 
apparently not by g++.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.   --- test.c ---

    int main() {
    __attribute__ ((__unused__))
        goto yyerrlab2;

2.  gcc -Wall test.c
3.  g++ -Wall test.c
Actual results:
gcc OK
g++ fails with:

    test.c: In function `int main()':
    test.c:4: syntax error before `goto'
    test.c:5: warning: label `yyerrlab2' defined but not used
    test.c:2: warning: label `yyerrlab1' defined but not used

Expected results:
Either g++ should support __attribute__ in the same way as gcc, or yacc.c
should take account of the different behavior.

Additional info:
g++296 fails in the same way.
Problem does not occur with bison-1.35-4, from RH8.0, which had bison.simple
instead of yacc.c.

Comment 1 John Ellson 2003-06-05 16:57:58 UTC
Also fails with g++ from today's gcc-3.3-4

Comment 2 Chris Chabot 2003-06-09 13:40:00 UTC
Verified that it also happens for me on RH9 and rawhide-current (20030609) 
with gcc-3.3-5 and bison-1.875.

Commenting out the macro from yacc.c is a workaround i gues

(ran into the problem while compiling groff)
