             Summary: Review results of compile with -Wstrict-overflow
                 Key: XERCESC-2105
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/XERCESC-2105
             Project: Xerces-C++
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Scott Cantor
            Assignee: Scott Cantor
             Fix For: 3.2.0
         Attachments: xerces-build.txt

The code base has had a number of pointer/length overflow bugs, so I thought it 
would be a good idea to do a gcc build with -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-overflow=5 to 
flag any cases where we're doing pointer math on potentially huge offset values 
that might overflow. This can defeat boundary checking because of compiler 
optimizations.

Attaching a build on RH7 with the libtool commands altered to output the 
warnings for review.
