Re: problems with std::wstring on Solaris

I assume you're talking about PR 6702 :

When I did that and tried to recompile libstdc++, I had problems with iswblank, vfwscanf, vswscanf, vwscanf, and wcstof. (Probably the reason GLIBCPP_USE_WCHAR_T was off.) After I commented those out in gcc-3.2/libstdc++-v3/include/c_std/std_cwchar.h and gcc-3.2/libstdc++-v3/include/c_std/std_cwctype.h libstdc++ compiled and installed fine.

Unfortunately, now basic_string::push_back gives a Segfault wmemset () from /usr/lib/ I assume this means I am now doing something incompatible with the system libraries.

This just seems unusual. I had been using gcc 3.0.4 and libstdc++-v3.0.96 perfectly on Solaris once I commented out iswblank. Would I be better using ibstdc++-v3.0.96 with gcc 3.2?? The reason I'm doing the upgrade anyway is to get a standard release, and have the same gcc on all of the (UNIX) OSes we use.

look for GLIBCPP_USE_WCHAR_T in c++config.h

It will be off on solaris. There's a bug in GNATS about this.
