Lucas Nussbaum dixit: >> arc4rnd_xs.c: At top level: >> arc4rnd_xs.c:167: error: expected ')' before string constant Could you please try the attached patch? If it works with it, blame it on the number of brokennesses in gcc increasing along- side with its version numbers. Thanks, //mirabilos -- In traditional syntax ' is ignored, but in c99 everything between two ' is handled as character constant. Therefore you cannot use ' in a preproces- sing file in c99 mode. -- Ragge No faith left in ISO C99, undefined behaviour, and C compiler authors.
