Oops, I've really checked the fix into CVS now.

Thanks - this should be fixed in CVS now.

The code is valid in C99, but some people are still using C89 compilers, so the fix should be applied.

Also, regexprops.c could use some work, too:

if gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../gnulib/lib -I../gnulib/lib     -g2 -Wall -Werror -MT regexprops.o -MD -MP -MF ".deps/regexprops.Tpo" -c -o regexprops.o regexprops.c; \
then mv -f ".deps/regexprops.Tpo" ".deps/regexprops.Po"; else rm -f ".deps/regexprops.Tpo"; exit 1; fi
regexprops.c: In function `describe_regex_syntax':
regexprops.c:434: warning: control reaches end of non-void function
regexprops.c: At top level:
regexprops.c:71: warning: 'table_item' defined but not used
regexprops.c:79: warning: 'code' defined but not used
regexprops.c:106: warning: 'begintable_asis' defined but not used

There are two minors bugs in findutils : some variables are defined into the body ofthe functions and not in the beginning of the functions.

We are :

  • lib/regextype.c line 148
  • find/find.c line 397

I propose a patch to correct this.
