RPC define types

RPC define types


I'm using W7-64 and cygwin gcc 6.3.1

Any hints for dealing with #define <a name=""

CODE --> c

C:\cygwin64\usr\local\bin\gcc.exe -Wextra -Wall -Wfloat-equal -Wundef -Wshadow -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Wstrict-prototypes -Wstrict-overflow=5 -Wwrite-strings -Waggregate-return -Wcast-qual -Wswitch-default -Wswitch-enum -Wconversion -Wunreachable-code   -c -o cxdrint.o cxdrint.c
In file included from rpc/types.h:97:0,
                 from rpc/rpc.h:38,
                 from cxdrint.c:2:
rpc/in.h:38:9: error: macro names must be identifiers
 #define <a name="_NETINET_IN_H_" <="" a=""><b>_NETINET_IN_H_</b>
rpc/in.h:48:9: error: macro names must be identifiers
 #define </a><a name="IPPROTO_IP"   <="" a=""><b>IPPROTO_IP</b>    0  /* dummy for IP              */ 

Thank you.

RE: RPC define types

It is difficult to tell the root cause and give a solution without seeing the source code. However, based on the output error message, the "#define" macro has the syntax issue. In the c programming, the #define should go like "#define _NETINET_IN_H_". Are you sure the "in.h" should be compiled?


RE: RPC define types

I'm not sure about compiling in.h.

The syntax <="" a=""><b>IPPROTO_IP</b> is challenging.

I have several versions of the library, most have includes that turn into rabbit holes.

I just need the xdr rpc library to link with a SW project. It's just easier to include it rather than remove it.

Thank you.
