2018-09-12remove spurious inclusion of libc.h for LFS64 ABI aliasesRich Felker-2/+1
the LFS64 macro was not self-documenting and barely saved any characters. simply use weak_alias directly so that it's clear what's being done, and doesn't depend on a header to provide a strange macro.
2018-09-12reduce spurious inclusion of libc.hRich Felker-0/+1
libc.h was intended to be a header for access to global libc state and related interfaces, but ended up included all over the place because it was the way to get the weak_alias macro. most of the inclusions removed here are places where weak_alias was needed. a few were recently introduced for hidden. some go all the way back to when libc.h defined CANCELPT_BEGIN and _END, and all (wrongly implemented) cancellation points had to include it. remaining spurious users are mostly callers of the LOCK/UNLOCK macros and files that use the LFS64 macro to define the awful *64 aliases. in a few places, new inclusion of libc.h is added because several internal headers no longer implicitly include libc.h. declarations for __lockfile and __unlockfile are moved from libc.h to stdio_impl.h so that the latter does not need libc.h. putting them in libc.h made no sense at all, since the macros in stdio_impl.h are needed to use them correctly anyway.
2018-09-12overhaul internally-public declarations using wrapper headersRich Felker-2/+1
commits leading up to this one have moved the vast majority of libc-internal interface declarations to appropriate internal headers, allowing them to be type-checked and setting the stage to limit their visibility. the ones that have not yet been moved are mostly namespace-protected aliases for standard/public interfaces, which exist to facilitate implementing plain C functions in terms of POSIX functionality, or C or POSIX functionality in terms of extensions that are not standardized. some don't quite fit this description, but are "internally public" interfacs between subsystems of libc. rather than create a number of newly-named headers to declare these functions, and having to add explicit include directives for them to every source file where they're needed, I have introduced a method of wrapping the corresponding public headers. parallel to the public headers in $(srcdir)/include, we now have wrappers in $(srcdir)/src/include that come earlier in the include path order. they include the public header they're wrapping, then add declarations for namespace-protected versions of the same interfaces and any "internally public" interfaces for the subsystem they correspond to. along these lines, the wrapper for features.h is now responsible for the definition of the hidden, weak, and weak_alias macros. this means source files will no longer need to include any special headers to access these features. over time, it is my expectation that the scope of what is "internally public" will expand, reducing the number of source files which need to include *_impl.h and related headers down to those which are actually implementing the corresponding subsystems, not just using them.
2012-11-08clean up stdio_impl.hRich Felker-0/+1
this header evolved to facilitate the extremely lazy practice of omitting explicit includes of the necessary headers in individual stdio source files; not only was this sloppy, but it also increased build time. now, stdio_impl.h is only including the headers it needs for its own use; any further headers needed by source files are included directly where needed.
2012-10-24correct locking in stdio functions that tried to be lock-freeRich Felker-10/+14
these functions must behave as if they obtain the lock via flockfile to satisfy POSIX requirements. since another thread can provably hold the lock when they are called, they must wait to obtain the lock before they can return, even if the correct return value could be obtained without locking. in the case of fclose and freopen, failure to do so could cause correct (albeit obscure) programs to crash or otherwise misbehave; in the case of feof, ferror, and fwide, failure to obtain the lock could sometimes return incorrect results. in any case, having these functions proceed and return while another thread held the lock was wrong.
2012-10-24greatly improve freopen behaviorRich Felker-7/+10
1. don't open /dev/null just as a basis to copy flags; use shared __fmodeflags function to get the right file flags for the mode. 2. handle the case (probably invalid, but whatever) case where the original stream's file descriptor was closed; previously, the logic re-closed it. 3. accept the "e" mode flag for close-on-exec; update dup3 to fallback to using dup2 so we can simply call __dup3 instead of putting fallback logic in freopen itself.
2012-10-24remove useless failure-check from freopen (can't happen)Rich Felker-2/+2
2012-09-06use restrict everywhere it's required by c99 and/or posix 2008Rich Felker-1/+1
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.
2012-06-19remove flush hook cruft that was never used from stdioRich Felker-1/+0
there is no need/use for a flush hook. the write function serves this purpose already. i originally created the hook for implementing mem streams based on a mistaken reading of posix, and later realized it wasn't useful but never removed it until now.
