I'm trying to use Gnulib's <math.h> from clang-cl C++
compiler. I have no problems with pure C with either clang-cl
or MSVC. But in C++ I get endless troubles with errors like these:
f:/MingW32/src/gnu/gnulib/lib\math.h(2397,36): error: functions that
differ only in their return type cannot be overloaded
Thanks to the excellent 'clang-format' program, I was able to generate
this preprocessed output:
// from MSVC and UCRT's <corecrt_math.h>:
inline bool signbit(float _X) throw()
return _fdsign(_X) != 0;
inline bool signbit(double _X) throw()
return _dsign(_X) != 0;
inline bool signbit(long double _X) throw()
return _ldsign(_X) != 0;
// and then from Gnulib's <math.h>:
inline int signbit(float f)
inline int signbit(double d)
inline int signbit(long double l)
I'm getting these error even without a 'REPLACE_SIGNBIT=1'.
And I fail to see how to prevent the above from getting into
I'm not C++ export, but would imagine that 'int' and 'bool'
are different types. Or does the 'throw()' have anything to do with
this error? Any hints please?
PS. I've tried clang-cl v3.9.0 and 5.0.0 with the same result.
