@ayappanec ayappanec commented Sep 12, 2018

We have recently ported R to AIX .
When trying to install data.table, there is a compilation issue with NAN and INFINITY.

fread.c:79:28: error: initializer element is not constant
static const double NAND = (double)NAN;
fread.c:80:28: error: initializer element is not constant
static const double INFD = (double)INFINITY;
With gcc -E option , we see this

static const unsigned int _SINFINITY = 0x7f800000;
static const unsigned int _SQNAN = 0x7fc00000;

static const double NAND = (double)
79 "fread.c" 3 4
(*((float )(&_SQNAN)))
79 "fread.c"
static const double INFD = (double)
80 "fread.c" 3 4
((float *)(&_SINFINITY)))
80 "fread.c"

So they don't seem to qualify as constant literals hence the compilation issue.
I have tested the fix in Linux as well.

Hi, thanks for catching that, appreciate your PR.
Would be even better if you could:

  • add entry in NEWS
  • put comment next to init() declaration referring issue/PR number

Also note that we have Contributing wiki which describes how to make PR.
You have good timing, we are preparing 1.11.6 release. Next 1.12.0 will probably takes some time, so we should include this for 1.11.6.

@jangorecki jangorecki added this to the 1.11.6 milestone Sep 12, 2018
