Description Timothy Wesson 2003-07-13 18:47:42 EDT
Description of problem:
Gnu typeof entension used to create polymorphic return types causes the compiler
to baulk

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc (GCC) 3.2 20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)

How reproducible:
Compile attached file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile attached file thus:
   g++ -g -Wall matrix.cpp
Actual results:
matrix.cpp: In function `int main()':
matrix.cpp:723: Internal compiler error in write_type, at cp/mangle.c:1458

Expected results:
Silent compile, generating a.out

Additional info:
The file throws the same error under DOS, running gxx (gcc version 2.23), but
said machine is not available from home, where I now am.

Source file that generates compiler error

Source file that generates compiler error when compiled with g++;
"g++ matrix.cpp" is sufficient to generate the error.

Comment 3 Richard Henderson 2004-10-03 20:10:59 EDT
Still fails in gcc 4.0.  There is sporadic activity on the gcc PR.
