Description William Gallafent 2005-05-03 13:07:22 UTC
Output of gcc -v: 
Using built-in specs. 
Target: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu 
Configured with: ../gcc-4.0.0/configure --prefix=/home/williamg/local/x86_64-40 
--enable-__cxa_atexit --enable-languages=c,c++ 
Thread model: posix 
gcc version 4.0.0 
Command line: 
~/local/x86_64-40/bin/gcc -O1 -Wall -Werror -c 3.c -o 3.o 
cc1: warnings being treated as errors 
3.c: In function ‘main’: 
3.c:6: warning: ‘initialised_when_a_is_non_zero’ may be used uninitialized in 
this function 
Preprocessed source: 
# 1 "3.c" 
# 1 "<built-in>" 
# 1 "<command line>" 
# 1 "3.c" 
extern int g (int); 
int main () { 
 const int a = g (0); 
 int initialised_when_a_is_non_zero; 
 if (a) 
  initialised_when_a_is_non_zero = 10; 
 g (1); 
 if (a) 
  g (initialised_when_a_is_non_zero); 
 return 0; 
It's clearly impossible that we use initialised_when_a_is_non_zero unless it 
has been initialised. 
The warning does not appear with -O0. 
Removing the line "g (1);" also makes the warning disappear.

This is known and a long standing bug.

Not a C front end bug and previously reported more than once.
