|Summary||0000832: Adding -pedantic compiler option triggers warnings in OMNeT++ headers|
|Description||I wanted to use the compiler option -pedantic in one of my projects.|
But compiling the project with this options overflows to console window with lots of warnings generated by some OMNeT++ headers.
All of these warnings are of the same type (warning: extra ‘;’) and are triggered by only 2 places in the code:
Place 1: nedsupport.h
This file contains the definition of the namespace 'NEDSupport', which ends at the end of the file, and is terminated with a semicolon. This semicolon is not necessary, triggers a warning, and can be safely removed.
Place 2: onstartup.h
This is more difficult. I can describe why the warning triggers, but I don't know how to fix it.
Suppose you have a message file name MyMessages.msg with a message type called MyMessage. Compiling this file creates a C++ file called MyMessages_m.cc.
This file will contain the lines
These macros are defined in 'regmacros.h' and both contain as their last statement the macro EXECUTE_ON_STARTUP which is defined in 'onstartup.h'.
The code in EXECUTE_ON_STARTUP defines a namespace which is again followed by a semicolon. Again, this semicolon is not necessary and can be removed.
However, this time this is not enough: When the Register_Class macro is expanded, the semicolon after Register_Class in the original C++ File (MyMessage_m.cc) will follow right after the namespace definition, where it triggers the same warning.
I don't know how to fix this. As a very dirty workaround, I have added the following statement at the end of EXECUTE_ON_STARTUP:
This gets rid of the warning, and I can compile my code with -pedantic without a single warning. However, the intention of adding -pedantic is to write clean code, so adding dirty hacks is probably not a good way to shut down a warning :)
It hasn't triggered a warning with my code, but the macro EXECUTE_ON_SHUTDOWN has the same structure as EXECUTE_ON_STARTUP, so I guess changes for one should also be applied to the other.
|Steps To Reproduce|
|Additional Information||To add the compiler option -pedantic, I added the following text in project settings->OMNeT++->Makemake->Options->Custom->Makefrag:|
CXXFLAGS += -pedantic
