Bug 10947

Summary: ++ postfix operator increments too soon
Product: gcc Reporter: Barry Mead <bmead15>
Component: cAssignee: Not yet assigned to anyone <unassigned>
Status: RESOLVED DUPLICATE    
Severity: normal CC: gcc-bugs
Priority: P2    
Version: 3.2.2   
Target Milestone: 3.4.0   
Host: I am sorry I don't know what goes in here Target:

Description Barry Mead 2003-05-23 02:26:05 UTC
With the following line of code:
*s++ = toupper(*s);
The 3.2.2 gcc increments s before the value is determined on the right side of
the equal sign.  So what happens is *s gets the value of toupper(*s+1) not
toupper(*s)
The bug did not occur in version 3.1.1 of gcc.  I have not run tests on versions
in-between these versions.  The gcc version 3.2.2 is the standard one that is
included in the Mandrake Linux 9.1 distribution.  If a known fix for this is
possible by recompiling gcc 3.2.2 or upgrading to a newer gcc please let me know.

Subject: Re: [Bug c/10947] New: ++ postfix operator increments too soon

This is a bug in your code, you are violating sequence point rules, you 
cannot access something that you increment.

Use the option -Wsequence-point for a warning about them.

   -Wsequence-point        Warn about possible violations of sequence 
point rules

you can do this instead:

{*s = toupper(*s); s++;}

Thanks,
Andrew Pinski

PS can someone close this bug.
