Description Benjamin K. Stuhl 2008-10-30 10:02:59 PDT
gcc 4.3.3 generates "suggest parentheses around && within ||" warnings when compiling JavaScriptCore/wtf/ASCIICType.h and WebCore/platform/graphics/Font.h

The code looks to be correct, just easy enough to mentally mis-parse that gcc warns about it with "build-webkit --qt"'s default compiler flags.

Here's a patch to add disambiguating parentheses and quiet the warnings. It's my first patch to WebKit, so let me know what else I need to do.

r=me for these changes. I am not sure that as a rule this should be done everywhere where some compiler might suggest it.
Comment 4 Benjamin K. Stuhl 2008-10-30 13:11:06 PDT
Agreed, there may be places where just adding parentheses is not a great idea -- but getting a page of warnings from every file that includes ASCIICType.h isn't great either. Will you be landing the patch, then?
