I will bet today's lunch money that you have found it for sure. I guess we will have to go around adding "signed" everywhere, if it's no longer the default. Unsigned is a stupid, counter-intuitive default, and has been, ever since I first used AIX. My bet is a conspiracy by AIX folks so that Open Source software will work on AIX without them having to fix their stupid defaults. 8-) 8-). If this isn't the default, then "signed" is too much like "const" and "volatile" and other "you can't ignore them or I will generate bad code" keywords. -- Terry To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
