Solaris - once.cpp compile error

Reported by: cpqlvc Owned by: Marshall Clow
Milestone: Component: None
Version: None Severity: Showstopper
Keywords: Cc:


I tried to compile the Boost.Threads library on
Solaris, but once.cpp generated a compile error.
The Solaris system is 

(export/home/swansond)$ uname -a
SunOS lvcsun1 5.8 Generic_108528-13 sun4u sparc 

The compiler is 

(export/home/swansond)$ g++ -v
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/sparc-sun-
gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)

The compile error is 
(27_0/libs/thread/src)$ g++ -g -Wall -
o ../build/lib/once.o -c -I../../.. once.cpp
once.cpp:42: warning: aggregate has a partly bracketed 
once.cpp:138: parse error at end of input

To eliminate the warning I enclosed PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT
in curly braces.

To correct the error (maybe ?) I added a closing
brace after the definition of do_once().

I tried compiling Boost.Threads on an RS/6000 box running 
AIX 4.3.  Of course, the curly brace problem reoccurred, 
which I fixed (?) as above, and on this platform I got a 
different warning about PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT.  

(27_0/libs/thread/src)$ g++ -g -Wall -W -I../../.. -c 
once.cpp:42: warning: missing initializer for member 
once.cpp:42: warning: missing initializer for member

This is a really, really old compiler. [ based on gcc 2.95.2 ], and the bug was reported in 2002. I don't think anyone uses this compiler (with boost) anymore. The last two people who posted to the boost list with questions about Solaris don't use this compiler (it's too old).
