[XML-SIG] problem compiling pyexpat.c with Irix 6 cc
Tue, 6 Jun 2000 14:49:37 +0100 (BST)
Hopefully a bug not reported too often. I am compiling lots of Python
libraries with the Irix 6 MIPSpro Compiler Version 7.30. In pyexpat.c in
the PyXML-0.5.4 distribution at line 82 there is a forward declaration
static struct HandlerInfo handler_info;
which the compiler does not like, the output to the screen is:
Running command: make
cc -Iexpat/xmlparse -O -OPT:Olimit=0
-I/dogmatix/wb104/python/Python-1.5.2/include/python1.5 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -c
./pyexpat.c cc-1081 cc: ERROR File = ./pyexpat.c, Line = 82
More than one storage class specifier appears in a declaration.
extern static struct HandlerInfo handler_info;
1 error detected in the compilation of "./pyexpat.c".
I re-arranged the code and used some other forward declarations to
eventually compile the code.
