Avoid reserved names in e?hiperfifo.c examples #4153

commented Jul 25, 2019

As discussed in #4120 (comment) here is a simple set of fixed to a couple of the example programs that allows them to compile (at least on Linux), and avoids using reserved names.

As far as I can tell, these examples are not built by default (because they have non-universal external dependencies), so they have probably just slightly rotted.

  • _Unused starts with _ and a capital letter, so it's reserved for the toolchain. Avoid that.
  • Lines like (void)_Unused; don't make sense to me and don't compile. Fix that.
  • Just use the classic (void)x; style to mark x as unused, and avoid the whole issue. (Why can't C have C++'s common sense rule of just leaving the arguments unnamed?)

Tested by building these manually on Linux x86_64.
