17/* _GL_WARN_ON_USE (function, "literal string") issues a declaration
18   for FUNCTION which will then trigger a compiler warning containing
19   the text of "literal string" anywhere that function is called, if
20   supported by the compiler.  If the compiler does not support this
21   feature, the macro expands to an unused extern declaration.
23   This macro is useful for marking a function as a potential
24   portability trap, with the intent that "literal string" include
25   instructions on the replacement function that should be used
26   instead.  However, one of the reasons that a function is a
27   portability trap is if it has the wrong signature.  Declaring
28   FUNCTION with a different signature in C is a compilation error, so
29   this macro must use the same type as any existing declaration so
30   that programs that avoid the problematic FUNCTION do not fail to
31   compile merely because they included a header that poisoned the
32   function.  But this implies that _GL_WARN_ON_USE is only safe to
33   use if FUNCTION is known to already have a declaration.  Use of
34   this macro implies that there must not be any other macro hiding
35   the declaration of FUNCTION; but undefining FUNCTION first is part
36   of the poisoning process anyway (although for symbols that are
37   provided only via a macro, the result is a compilation error rather
38   than a warning containing "literal string").  Also note that in
39   C++, it is only safe to use if FUNCTION has no overloads.
41   For an example, it is possible to poison 'getline' by:
42   - adding a call to gl_WARN_ON_USE_PREPARE([[#include <stdio.h>]],
43     [getline]) in, which potentially defines
45   - adding this code to a header that wraps the system <stdio.h>:
46     #undef getline
48     _GL_WARN_ON_USE (getline, "getline is required by POSIX 2008, but"
49       "not universally present; use the gnulib module getline");
50     #endif
52   It is not possible to directly poison global variables.  But it is
53   possible to write a wrapper accessor function, and poison that
54   (less common usage, like &environ, will cause a compilation error
55   rather than issue the nice warning, but the end result of informing
56   the developer about their portability problem is still achieved):
58   static char ***rpl_environ (void) { return &environ; }
59   _GL_WARN_ON_USE (rpl_environ, "environ is not always properly declared");
60   # undef environ
61   # define environ (*rpl_environ ())
62   #endif
