Without a standard that matches current hardware and software practice, arguments, confusion, and friction can arise; see e. To post a comment you must log in. Miscellanous Web pages found via Google Official technology standards. However, if the size changes, a new field of that size is allocated.
It’s easy to copy from “friends”. He’s helping author a new ABI supplement for ‘x32’, a 32 bit x abi; see https: 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.
I would assume qbi386 GCC modifying that parameter on the stack is fine, but I want to know where it is specified that it can do so.
I’m not talking about the arguments in C, I am talking about calling C functions from assembly and at the machine level. If you are passing by value, and you only use the initial, passed-in struct one time, why shouldn’t the compiler recognize this and use the original struct rather than creating a new one?
The caller does clean them up but ignores the value. Although the caller in some calling conventions is the one that cleans up the arguments, all it’s really doing ani386 deallocating the space previously allocated on the stack to hold the argument values.
Comment 6 Alexandre Pereira Nunes I’ve seem that gcc packs structures in a very similar if not identical fashion on some ani386 ixlinux-gnu, arm-elf, mingw without -mms-bitfields, at leastare they covered by sysv ABI too?

When making a function call in Linux or OS X for that mattercan the callee modify the values of the arguments on the stack? In case it is, could someone please point me to a documentation source, i. So, is the correct stack alignment 4 bytes?
C calling conventions and passed arguments Ask Question. 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 abi36 be changed.
If agi386 pass by reference: Right, in that case you can definitely not assume that the popped value will always equal what you previously pushed.

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. Yes in practice an arguments might never actually be in any kind of stack, it would be in a named register this is especially true in platforms with a lot of registers – like MIPS. A full zero for the whole homework or project if ANY of it was a cheat! Calendar This week M-F Sept You need to log in to change this bug’s status.

It tends to be somewhat vague about certain things, however Description Alexandre Pereira Nunes Counterproductive for you and unfair to others. Better documentation is certainly appreciated, but – what is the bug here? Launchpad couldn’t connect to lsbbugs. The original question isn’t so much about the C language, but about a specific implementation as in, if I don’t change it, why does the compiler do so?
Where does the C standard make any projections on what the machine should do to accomplish standard compliance? So what I’m asking is: But the request for better documentation is correct.
