It seems people are looking for my blog on how to compile lparse with modern GCC or Ubuntu. The major problem is that many programs in lparse source code do not include stdio.h or other needed head files. I do not know why on some platform such code can be compiled. At least it does not work for my GCC 4.x. And it seems since version 4.2, GCC is getting strict on C standard.
Here is the solution to solve such problems if you are using GCC 4.4.1 on Ubuntu Linux 9.10. An earlier version for GCC 4.33 on Ubuntu Linux 9.04 is at http://forrestbao.blogspot.com/2009/11/lparse-111-conflicts-with-gcc-433.html Janosch reported the problem on Ubuntu 9.10. So I am writing this blog entry.
Step 1: Install bison. You can use
sudo apt-get install bisonor other ways.
Step 2: Comment out line 85 of
//long int strtol(const char *nptr, char **endptr, int base);PS: I do not know why the
HAVE_STRTOLdoes not work.
Step 3: Include
#include <stdio.h> #include <stdarg.h>
Step 4: Done! Make and you shall get tons of warnings but finally the lparse executable.
