Description Erick Tryzelaar 2003-10-16 21:42:41 UTC
int main ()
     int i = i + 5;

     return 0;

compiles with:
gcc -Wall foo.c -o foo;

Is valid code. This appears to work with any variable.
I think there should be a warning, or compile error to prevent this from occuring.
Comment 1 Andrew Pinski 2003-10-16 21:46:28 UTC
This is a already fixed on the mainline by warning that the variable is uninitialized.
This is a dup of bug 10538.
