Date: Fri, 8 Jun 2012 11:34:04 +0100 From: Reuben Thomas <rrt@...d.org> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: printf POSIX compliance I notice that the musl FAQ says "the fundamentally broken freadahead function in gnulib cannot be fixed by adding features to the C library". I found this question because a user complained about my use of gnulib in a package I maintain. I contacted the gnulib maintainers, one of whom replied: "IIRC, gnulib's freadahead use is caused by musl's printf not being posix compliant, causing gnulib to pull in its printf replacement, which doesn't work on musl." It would be nice to sort this out: either musl's printf is not POSIX-compliant, or gnulib's detection of POSIX-compliance is buggy. Does any musl developer fancy looking at a gnulib-using package (e.g. GNU grep, coreutils &c.) and finding out what gnulib thinks is wrong with musl's printf? There are obvious benefits to sorting this out, wherever the fault lies! -- http://rrt.sc3d.org
