How can I detect whether this function is available using the preprocessor? The community wiki advocates "testing" for feature support, which I guess means compiling a test program like an autotools configure script. Can we not just test for a macro instead? Have you considered defining something like `__HAS_QSORT_R` to tell us directly that you support it? I am writing a cross-platform header-only library. I want my users to be able to just drop the header files of my library into their codebase. I really don't want them to have to write their own configure tests just to tell my library whether musl provides qsort_r(). I am able to detect variants of qsort_r() or qsort_s() with the preprocessor on all other platforms that support such an extension. Is there a way to detect it with musl? Nick
