g++ compiling code that is wrong.
Wed Apr 27 20:45:00 GMT 2005
I dont know if I am to write here, but I think I found a bug that I know
is not related to my hardware or my system. Problem is that I don't know
how to report it or if it allready been reported(Kind of hard to search
for a bug when you dont know how to describe it.).
Backstory : I am a bit of a newbie on C++ and was doing a
schoolassigment where I was to make a dynamic array. I didn't do it
right but the code compile(and work on gentoo, didn't work on windowsXP)
Instead of using new and delete when making the array, I wrote a code
that was something like this :
cout << "bla bla bla";
The code compile both on gentoo linux(gcc 3.3.5 gcc 3.4.3) and
windowsXP(Minigw 3.2.0-rc3) and on my friends computer under gcc(I
belive Cygwin, dont know which version). I haven't tried it on newer
versions, so I don't know if you already fixed it.
According to the friend(who work as a c++ programer doing apps and stuff
on linuxsystems) and the teacher, this code is shouldn't be able to
compile at all(Which it didn't under MS visual studio).
I was compiling with no options, just g++ but now I saw there was a
-pedantic options and I tried it which return error.
Hope I didn't waste your time with a bug allready reported, but I
thought it would be better to report it just incase.
