Per, please. We've been through these ***exact*** interchanges before.
You're now just reiterating the entire thread. You aren't adding anything
I didn't see my specific proposal ('\\' follow by space is not a line
continuation *and* an improved -Wcomment defaults to on when no options
are given) in the previous discussion, though of course the issues and
possibilities were covered in excessive depth.
just informing everyone which of the already-discussed possibilities your
own personal opinion happens to be. And you aren't even offering a patch.
You're missing an important point: I'm currently the only person listed
as cpplib maintainer. I very much favored Zack's change to allow
trailing whitespace after a continuation character, and have just said
I'm willing to change this *if* we make -Wcomment the default. So even
though I have very little time to spend on gcc, my "personal opinion"
matters. If my proposal is acceptable to Apple (and I haven't heard
them chime in about it), then we may have a solution that could be
acceptable to everybody, without Apple having to create (another) fork
in their code-base. It means that Apple can produce a patch with
reasonable assurance that it will be approved (assuming we also get
consensus from the global write maintainers on the -Wcomment changes.)
