Do we?  I was pretty sure that a record with one field
receives the mode of the field.

Yes, that's right.  Are you suggesting we do the same for the array case?

Yes.  Why not?  It's almost certainly the most useful
mode that could be given...

g++ regression? constructor function attribute

Is the constructor function attribute supposed to work with g++?  

It don't think it works on the 3.1 branch or Red Hat's 2.96-RH. I don't
have easy access to older versions to know if this is a regression. 
However, some notes from the mail archive suggest that it is...

Re: GCC: accessing exceptiond from C?

How about just writing a simple library in C++, using `extern "C"'
so that this library is easily accessible from C code?

It is desirable to have a single standard exception-handling library
in C, not only for doing exception handling in C, but also for other
languages.  Many languages implementations compile to C, or have run-time
libraries written in C, and providing such a library would allow these
implementations to support exceptions in a way that is compatible with
C or C++ code using exceptions.  This would allow exceptions thrown
by code written in one language to be caught by code written in a
different language, without requiring the different language
implementations to interface directly with the GCC back-end
exception-handling support (a much higher bar).

I have just written such a library -- see attached.
The library defines a C interface which can be implemented
either in C++, using exceptions, or in C, using setjmp/longjmp.
I would appreciate comments on the proposed interface.

In the long run I think it would be nice for something
like this to be included in the C standard.

I'm not sure off-hand, but if so, it could be worked around by using
a variable which is set by an autoconf test.

E.g. instead of

	foo-subdir:
		cd foo && make

you can write

	RECURSIVE = +

	foo-subdir:
		$(RECURSIVE) cd foo && make

and it will still work correctly.  For non-GNU Make, just set RECURSIVE
to be empty instead of `+'.

Ok, so I assume the merge Geert is planning for this week is to bring
3.1 ada to the ACT tree.

You mean that ACT will stay on 3.1 and continue development there for a 
while?

My understanding (of the FSF GCC tree procedure) is that after the FSF 
release only critical bug fixes should go there
and for Ada this probably means bugs making impossible to
build the release or use the release bootstrap head on some platform, that
should be low volume. The rest of development should happen on head,
and I assume ACT need not keep both 3.1 and head in sync for the
FSF tree, head is enough. (Of course ACT might choose to do both
for customer releases)

Thanks for the information,
