Bug #35723 xmlrpc_introspection.c fails compile per C99 std
Submitted: 2005-12-18 05:00 UTC Modified: 2005-12-19 00:00 UTC
From: richton at nbcs dot rutgers dot edu Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Compile Failure
PHP Version: 5CVS-2005-12-18 (snap) OS: *
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2005-12-18 05:00 UTC] richton at nbcs dot rutgers dot edu
ext/xmlrpc/libxmlrpc/xmlrpc_introspection.c has a couple 
inline functions:

inline XMLRPC_VALUE find_named_value(XMLRPC_VALUE list, const 
char* needle) {
inline void describe_method(XMLRPC_SERVER server, XMLRPC_VALUE 
vector, const char* method) {

They are referenced elsewhere in the file, but there is no 
external definition. See C99 specification section 6.7.4. 

An extra keyword here would go a long way...

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
successful compile

Actual result:
Undefined                       first referenced
symbol                             in file
find_named_value                    ext/xmlrpclibxmlrpc/.libs/
describe_method                     ext/xmlrpclibxmlrpc/.libs/

ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to

What compiler and linker are you using?

Sun Studio. It's free (as in beer) now, you can download it 
from Linker is the standard Solaris 9 linker, latest 
patch 112963-25. However this shouldn't be a compiler issue as 
it's written into the standard. (admittedly there's a lot of 
non-C99 compliant gcc out there, but...)
