First of all, sorry for putting it on this list, but I'm using NetBSD.
I have problem with the following, simple, piece of C code:
char *test = "Test";
snprintf(test, 5, "Passed");
If you compile and run it - crash!
If you change 'char *test' to 'char test' - works!
Tried with egcs-1.1.2 and gcc-2.95.3 on NetBSD-current (yesterday sources).
Please help. Thank you. :)
