2020-01-25move struct dirent to bits header, allow NAME_MAX to varyRich Felker-12/+2
this is not necessary for linux but is a simple, inexpensive change to make that facilitates ports to systems where NAME_MAX needs to be longer.

reported and changes suggested by Daniel Sabogal.
2016-07-03make brace placement in public header struct definitions consistentRich Felker-2/+1
placing the opening brace on the same line as the struct keyword/tag is the style I prefer and seems to be the prevailing practice in more recent additions. these changes were generated by the command: find include/ arch/*/bits -name '*.h' \ -exec sed -i '/^struct [^;{]*$/{N;s/\n/ /;}' {} + and subsequently checked by hand to ensure that the regex did not pick up any false positives.
2013-07-22refactor headers, especially alltypes.h, and improve C++ ABI compatRich Felker-1/+1
the arch-specific bits/ has been replaced with a generic and minimal arch-specific bits/ this commit is intended to have no functional changes except: - exposing additional symbols that POSIX allows but does not require - changing the C++ name mangling for some types - fixing the signedness of blksize_t on powerpc (POSIX requires signed) - fixing the limit macros for sig_atomic_t on x86_64 - making dev_t an unsigned type (ABI matching goal, and more logical) in addition, some types that were wrongly defined with long on 32-bit archs were changed to int, and vice versa; this change is non-functional except for the possibility of making pointer types mismatch, and only affects programs that were using them incorrectly, and only at build-time, not runtime. the following changes were made in the interest of moving non-arch-specific types out of the alltypes system and into the headers they're associated with, and also will tend to improve application compatibility: - netdb.h now includes netinet/in.h (for socklen_t and uint32_t) - netinet/in.h now includes sys/socket.h and inttypes.h - sys/resource.h now includes sys/time.h (for struct timeval) - sys/wait.h now includes signal.h (for siginfo_t) - langinfo.h now includes nl_types.h (for nl_item) for the types in stdint.h: - types which are of no interest to other headers were moved out of the alltypes system. - fast types for 8- and 64-bit are hard-coded (at least for now); only the 16- and 32-bit ones have reason to vary by arch. and the following types have been changed for C++ ABI purposes; - mbstate_t now has a struct tag, __mbstate_t - FILE's struct tag has been changed to _IO_FILE - DIR's struct tag has been changed to __dirstream - locale_t's struct tag has been changed to __locale_struct - pthread_t is defined as unsigned long in C++ mode only - fpos_t now has a struct tag, _G_fpos64_t - fsid_t's struct tag has been changed to __fsid_t - idtype_t has been made an enum type (also required by POSIX) - nl_catd has been changed from long to void * - siginfo_t's struct tag has been removed - sigset_t's has been given a struct tag, __sigset_t - stack_t has been given a struct tag, sigaltstack - suseconds_t has been changed to long on 32-bit archs - [u]intptr_t have been changed from long to int rank on 32-bit archs - dev_t has been made unsigned summary of tests that have been performed against these changes: - nsz's libc-test (diff -u before and after) - C++ ABI check symbol dump (diff -u before, after, glibc) - grepped for __NEED, made sure types needed are still in alltypes - built gcc 3.4.6
2012-12-03feature test macros: make _GNU_SOURCE enable everythingRich Felker-7/+2
previously, a few BSD features were enabled only by _BSD_SOURCE, not by _GNU_SOURCE. since _BSD_SOURCE is default in the absence of other feature test macros, this made adding _GNU_SOURCE to a project not a purely additive feature test macro; it actually caused some features to be suppressed. most of the changes made by this patch actually bring musl in closer alignment with the glibc behavior for _GNU_SOURCE. the only exceptions are the added visibility of functions like strlcpy which were BSD-only due to being disliked/rejected by glibc maintainers. here, I feel the consistency of having _GNU_SOURCE mean "everything", and especially the property of it being purely additive, are more valuable than hiding functions which glibc does not have.
2012-09-07default features: make musl usable without feature test macrosRich Felker-5/+1
the old behavior of exposing nothing except plain ISO C can be obtained by defining __STRICT_ANSI__ or using a compiler option (such as -std=c99) that predefines it. the new default featureset is POSIX with XSI plus _BSD_SOURCE. any explicit feature test macros will inhibit the default. installation docs have also been updated to reflect this change.
2012-09-06use restrict everywhere it's required by c99 and/or posix 2008Rich Felker-1/+7
to deal with the fact that the public headers may be used with pre-c99 compilers, __restrict is used in place of restrict, and defined appropriately for any supported compiler. we also avoid the form [restrict] since older versions of gcc rejected it due to a bug in the original c99 standard, and instead use the form *restrict.

2012-06-13add (currently stubbed due to stubbed strverscmp) versionsort functionRich Felker-0/+5
based on patch by Emil Renner Berthing, with minor changes to dirent.h for LFS64 and organization of declarations this code should work unmodified once a real strverscmp is added, but I've been hesitant to add it because the GNU strverscmp behavior is harmful in a lot of cases (for instance if you have numeric filenames in hex). at some point I plan on trying to design a variant of the algorithm that behaves better on a mix of filename styles.
2012-06-04_GNU_SOURCE is supposed to imply _LARGEFILE64_SOURCERich Felker-1/+1
this is ugly and stupid, but now that the *64 symbol names exist, a lot of broken GNU software detects them in configure, then either breaks during build due to missing off64_t definition, or attempts to compile without function declarations/prototypes. "fixing" it here is easier than telling everyone to add yet another feature test macro to their builds.
2012-05-22support _BSD_SOURCE feature test macroRich Felker-1/+1
patch by Isaac Dunham. matched closely (maybe not exact) to glibc's idea of what _BSD_SOURCE should make visible.
2012-05-04add support for ugly *64 functions with _LARGEFILE64_SOURCERich Felker-0/+10
musl does not support legacy 32-bit-off_t whatsoever. off_t is always 64 bit, and correct programs that use off_t and the standard functions will just work out of the box. (on glibc, they would require -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 to work.) however, some programs instead define _LARGEFILE64_SOURCE and use alternate versions of all the standard types and functions with "64" appended to their names. we do not want code to actually get linked against these functions (it's ugly and inconsistent), so macros are used instead of prototypes with weak aliases in the library itself. eventually the weak aliases may be added at the library level for the sake of using code that was originally built against glibc, but the macros will still be the desired solution in the headers.
2011-06-06fix handling of d_name in struct direntRich Felker-1/+1
basically there are 3 choices for how to implement this variable-size string member: 1. C99 flexible array member: breaks using dirent.h with pre-C99 compiler. 2. old way: length-1 string: generates array bounds warnings in caller. 3. new way: length-NAME_MAX string. no problems, simplifies all code. of course the usable part in the pointer returned by readdir might be shorter than NAME_MAX+1 bytes, but that is allowed by the standard and doesn't hurt anything.
2011-04-03d_fileno alias for d_ino in direntRich Felker-0/+2
this is nonstandard but since POSIX reserved d_ prefix in dirent.h we might as well define it unconditionally. some programs depend on it.
