$ g++ --std=c++11 -o stoitest stoitest.cpp
stoitest.cpp: In function 'int main(int, char**)':
stoitest.cpp:18:15: error: 'stoi' was not declared in this scope

This program compiles and runs on Ubuntu Linux, using g++ 4.8.2. It produces the above error on DragonFly BSD, both using the g++ 4.7.4 in world and using g++ 4.8.3 installed as a package.

I don't have a fix but here's why.

In contrib/gcc-4.7/libstdc++-v3/include/bits/basic_string.h we find:

#if (defined(__GXX_EXPERIMENTAL_CXX0X__) && defined(_GLIBCXX_USE_C99) \

#include <ext/string_conversions.h>

namespace std _GLIBCXX_VISIBILITY(default)

// 21.4 Numeric Conversions [string.conversions].
inline int
stoi(const string& __str, size_t* __idx = 0, int __base = 10)
{ return __gnu_cxx::__stoa<long, int>(&std::strtol, "stoi", __str.c_str(),
__idx, __base); }

} // namespace

#endif /* __GXX_EXPERIMENTAL_CXX0X__ && _GLIBCXX_USE_C99 ... */

__GXX_EXPERIMENTAL_CXX0X__ is defined, _GLIBCXX_HAVE_BROKEN_VSWPRINTF isn't, so we're clear regarding those two. However, _GLIBCXX_USE_C99 isn't defined, but it's needed for stoi() and various other functions.

From libstdc++-v3's configure output:

checking for ISO C99 support in <complex.h>... no
checking for ISO C99 support in <stdio.h>... yes
checking for ISO C99 support in <stdlib.h>... yes
checking for ISO C99 support in <wchar.h>... yes
checking for fully enabled ISO C99 support... no

Compiling the associated conftest for complex.h gives this:

complex.c:(.text+0x19b): undefined reference to `clogf'
complex.c:(.text+0x3e6): undefined reference to `cpowf'
complex.c:(.text+0x65d): undefined reference to `clog'
complex.c:(.text+0x8db): undefined reference to `cpow'
complex.c:(.text+0xa0c): undefined reference to `ccosl'
complex.c:(.text+0xa7c): undefined reference to `ccoshl'
complex.c:(.text+0xaec): undefined reference to `cexpl'
complex.c:(.text+0xb5c): undefined reference to `clogl'
complex.c:(.text+0xbcc): undefined reference to `csinl'
complex.c:(.text+0xc3c): undefined reference to `csinhl'
complex.c:(.text+0xd1c): undefined reference to `ctanl'
complex.c:(.text+0xd8c): undefined reference to `ctanhl'
complex.c:(.text+0xe2a): undefined reference to `cpowl'

So it seems we need these functions first before we could enable _GLIBCXX_USE_C99 which would then cause stoi() to be present.

And in fact, using

g++ -D_GLIBCXX_USE_C99 --std=c++11 -o stoitest stoitest.cpp

it will compile.

gcc has the missing functions built in, although I don't know yet if this includes gcc 4.7. A failed conftest doesn't mean there's no C99, it just means it needs to use builtin intead of libc I think.

early research of mine indicates swildner is correct and the missing obscure complex functions are causing dragonfly to be declared C99 incapable even though it could handle stoi and other functions.

Maybe it's best just to add the functions from NetBSD into libm.

  • Status changed from New to Closed

I've imported 16 complex functions into libm from NetBSD.
From this point, any gcc built from dports on master will be capable of c++11.

In addition, I update the config.h header for the gcc47 base compiler and it can also build the test case in this bug report (latest master of course).

closing the report...
