Description Askar Safin 2016-12-11 12:29:19 UTC
Consider this code:

struct foo
  friend void
  bar (void);

  void baz (void)
    bar ();

bar (void)

g++ gives very strange "suggestion":

gcrash.cpp: In member function 'void foo::baz()':
gcrash.cpp:8:5: error: 'bar' was not declared in this scope
     bar ();
gcrash.cpp:8:5: note: suggested alternative: 'bar'
     bar ();

Error seems to be legit. Problem is in suggestion. g++ suggests to replace "bar" with "bar". (???)

Command line:
/usr/lib/gcc-snapshot/bin/g++ -std=c++1z -fdiagnostics-color=always -c -o /dev/null gcrash.cpp

Fixed by r242965, I'm marking that as duplicate of one of PRs fixed by the commit.
