Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-20) [Cygwin] madvise() needs a config test
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2007 14:56:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/STDCXX-20?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12523858

Farid Zaripov commented on STDCXX-20:
-------------------------------------

Cygwin has posix_madvise() function:

/usr/include/sys/mman.h:
...
extern int posix_madvise (void *__addr, size_t __len, int __advice);
...

Here is the information about the function:
http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/000095399/functions/posix_madvise.html

Interesting that www.opengroup.org knows nothing about madvise(). There no page
http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/000095399/functions/madvise.html and
madvise() not mentioned at page with description of sys/mman.h:
http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/000095399/basedefs/sys/mman.h.html

Below is a part of the mman.h on RedHat Enterprise Linux 4:
------------
#ifdef __USE_BSD
/* Advise the system about particular usage patterns the program follows
   for the region starting at ADDR and extending LEN bytes.  */
extern int madvise (void *__addr, size_t __len, int __advice) __THROW;
#endif
#ifdef __USE_XOPEN2K
/* This is the POSIX name for this function.  */
extern int posix_madvise (void *__addr, size_t __len, int __advice) __THROW;
#endif
------------

By default the both functions are defined.

Since posix_madvise() is always defined (I suppose that is true), perhaps we should use it
instead of madvise() ?
