Description William King 2014-06-14 19:03:23 UTC
C code:
else if(strcasecmp(var, "b") 

the second call to strcasecmp is being optimized out, and the control statement is effectively being treated as an if() else statement.

More detailed write up here:

The second call to strcasecmp is being removed in pass #200 during a DCE loop.

4.6.3 is no longer supported, can you try a newer compiler?  Also can you attach the preprocessed source?

Created attachment 32939 [details]
Source file for switch_core_media.c

Line 3356 is the strcasecmp that is being optimized out.
Comment 3 William King 2014-06-14 20:15:45 UTC
Line 7945 has the strcasecmp of the gcc output 'original' pass:

This is the source and not the preprocessed source.

Still waiting for reporter to try a still supported compiler which would be
GCC 4.8.3 or 4.9.0.
Comment 7 William King 2014-06-17 15:00:17 UTC
While I haven't had a chance to run through more than a handful of call scenarios, building FreeSWITCH on the Raspberry Pi with GCC 4.9.0 does not have the same problem.

No feedback in over 2 years and it sounds like it was working now anyways.
