When the prototype parameter name matches a local variable, the C compiler (and lint) whine about clashes between names in local/global namespace. 2 ways to fix this are to "protect" the prototype argument names with the "_", or to remove the argument name altogether. proc.h has no clear guidance, in that recent commits don't stick to the established style of the file. Some newish prototypes have a mixture of named/unnamed args in the same function. While I was making all prototypes' args named, I protected them. I'd like to fix the warnings, and I'd like the file to be consistent WRT argument naming. > It's certainly not part of style(9) that I've ever noticed > and it's generally noy done that way.. is there a move to do this on all > the other files? There is a move to fix lint(1) warnings. M -- Mark Murray iumop ap!sdn w,I idlaH To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
