CDT reports error with va_list but compiles anyway [message #718351] Wed, 24 August 2011 04:18 Go to next message

I am using Eclipse 3.7 and working with a C project. The code makes use of
va_list by including stdarg.h. The project builds and runs successfully but
Eclipse marks the lines with va_list with compiler errors and says "Type
va_list could not be resolved" when I hover over it.

I am using MinGW as the tool chain and the contents of its stdarg.h are
shown below. I cannot see where the va_list macro is defined in it so I am
wondering how the build works at all.

What is going on here and how can I fix this problem?

Regards,

Jarrick

The error message is from the internal code analysis (CODAN) in Eclipse. I have similar code with va_list on Linux (stdarg.h seems to be identical) but do not get this error message. It seems your index is not complete. Did you try to rebuild your index (open context menu of your project in Project Explorer and select Index->Rebuild)?

Thanks Axel, that fixed the problem.
