cygwin 1.5.24-2 gcc 3.4.4 stdio.h
Thu Nov 29 12:12:00 GMT 2007
I downloaded cygwin 1.5.24-2 (just a couple of weeks ago) and
compiled the following program with "gcc -ansi fred.c"
(NOTE the "-ansi" keyword):
#define pid_t fred was here
And got the following result:
In file included from /usr/include/stdio.h:46,
/usr/include/sys/types.h:180: error: parse error before "was"
In file included from /usr/include/sys/types.h:373,
/usr/include/cygwin/types.h:146: error: parse error before "fred"
ie it is hitting a typedef for pid_t
This is the compiler version:
gcc (GCC) 3.4.4 (cygming special, gdc 0.12, using dmd 0.125)

"-ansi" is meant to mask all the Posix stuff and just provide pure ANSI C89 headers.
I asked about this on the Cygwin mailing list and they directed me here.
If someone can give me some guidance, I can probably make the changes
that will remove the non-ANSI stuff that are affecting me, and send a
context diff if someone can process that. Can anyone help?
