RE: GCC 4.5.1 Released (2)

Ik zie ook wat leuke dingen in de release notes:

* MIPS targets now support the -fstack-protector option.

Uit de handleiding:

Emit extra code to check for buffer overflows, such as stack smashing
This is done by adding a guard variable to functions with vulnerable
This includes functions that call alloca, and functions with buffers
larger than
8 bytes. The guards are initialized when a function is entered and then
when the function exits. If a guard check fails, an error message is
printed and
the program exits.

Like '-fstack-protector' except that all functions are protected.
