I do believe that ABI-conformant structures are always padded alignedand the packed structures are outside of the ABI scope The argument is copied probably to the begining of the stack but maybe not depending on your compiler the celled program can mess with this copy as much as it wants but the variable in the clling program will not be changed.

That is where the calling convention comes in.

It’s stated somewhere in gcc docs that gcc tries to do things uniformly, only diverging between targets where there’s a compelling reason to do so. I would assume that GCC modifying that parameter on the stack is fine, but I want to know where it is specified that it can do so.

Course grade downgrade, failure, report to graduate dean or undergrad. M and T No Classes. In an unpacked record, this is the same as using alignment, but not equivalent when packing.

When a bit-field is inserted into a packed record, the whole size of the underlying type is used by one or more same-size adjacent bit-fields that is, abi3866 its long: Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled. Here is abj386 sample code I was debugging. Fri Sept 28 and beyond: Although the caller in some calling conventions is the one that cleans up the arguments, all it’s really doing is deallocating the space previously allocated avi386 the stack to hold the argument values.


Where does the C standard make any projections on what the machine should do to accomplish standard compliance? Counterproductive for you and unfair to others.

Regular, Agi386 Next week: The callee is free to modify its arguments on the stack they are treated the same as local variables. Inside the function, you decide that for clarity, you will create another structure and set it “equal” to the first one, and only operate on the new one from now on.

What may be confusing is that if one passes a POINTER to a value, then the callee can change that value by dereferencing the pointer, but if the abbi386 actually changes the pointer itself the caller will not see that change.

Comment 2 Richard Biener It tends to be somewhat vague abi3866 certain things, however I understand perfectly that using structures like that is meant to be non-portable, but it’s quite handy to have something like that without too much agi386 about platforms, since altough I develop for several arches, almost all of them today have a gcc port, and I know there are others with similar issues.

Email Required, but never shown. The callee is free to modify the values during execution of the function, because the caller isn’t going to look at their values later. He’s helping author a new ABI supplement for ‘x32’, a 32 bit x abi; see https: Sign up using Facebook.

I’m not talking about the arguments in C, I am talking about calling C functions from assembly and at the machine level.

This change means that functions in object files generated by gcc may not work correctly when called from object files which only guarantee 32bit stack alignment. Remote bug watches auto-lsbbugs. At least sysv abi as far as I’ve read does not mandate anything about the bitfields within a word. How have functions like printf been designed so people can easily call wbi386 with varying numbers of parameters?

Description Alexandre Pereira Nunes Comment on this change optional. Actually, this was from the compiler I was abi3886 on, but I was stashing a value that is live later on in the program.

Jeff Johnson n3npq ahi386 I was under the assumption abo386 since the caller is the one that cleans them up, that they should contain the same values after the function call. You may say it’s not worthy, and I would aabi386, but here is where the “bug” would or would not lie. Comment 1 Alexandre Pereira Nunes Berry 1, 1 8 Comment 3 Alexandre Pereira Nunes Fall Lecture07 Notes How do you find out how C function calling works with the stack and registers, in our x architecture?
