> You've lost me completely I'm afraid. What's a "traditional predefine"?
A coined term. The HP cc compiler has three operational modes defined
by the options -Ac, -Aa and -Ae (classic or traditional, ansi, and
ansi-extended). A traditional predefine is simply a define that occurs
in the classic mode, but not in the ansi or ansi-extended modes. For
the most part they are symbols like "unix" or "hppa" which don't start
with a double '_', or a single '_' and an uppercase alpha. These symbols
are not in the ansi-extended namespace but we have been adding them to
the gcc namespace.
