Description Pawel Sikora 2005-07-20 18:41:04 UTC
class obj { 
    int value; 
    obj() { } 
    obj(int v) : value(v) { } 
    int getValue() const { return value; } 
    const static obj seven; 
const obj obj::seven = obj(7); 
int getSeven() 
    return obj::seven.getValue(); 
gcc (3.3.6,4.1.0) places this immutable const static object 
in .bss section and calls constructor(int) in .ctors section. 
why it isn't placed in .rodata ?

Please correct me if I misunderstand, but it doen't seem reasonable to
close this bug as won't fix, based on it being difficult to fix for v2.95?

This is a valid bug, however hard it may be to solve (see PR 4131). 
Comment 5 Giovanni Bajo 2005-07-21 02:08:04 UTC
Does ICC put this in .rodata?
Comment 6 Wolfgang Bangerth 2005-07-21 23:00:56 UTC
No, icc puts it into bss and runs code to initialize it with 7: 
	.align 4 
	.globl _ZN3obj5sevenE 
	.type	_ZN3obj5sevenE,@object 
	.size	_ZN3obj5sevenE,4 
	.space 4	# pad 
	.align 4

This is a dup of bug 4131.
