Subject: CVS commit: src/gnu/dist/gcc/gcc
To: None <>
From: Jim Wise <>
List: source-changes
Date: 11/30/2004 01:51:13
Module Name:	src
Committed By:	jwise
Date:		Tue Nov 30 01:51:13 UTC 2004

Modified Files:
	src/gnu/dist/gcc/gcc: cppfiles.c
	src/gnu/dist/gcc/gcc/doc: cpp.1 cppenv.texi

Log Message:
As discussed on, make cpp refuse to attempt to
parse a #include'd file which does not pass S_ISREG() if the environment variable

This is primarily intended for use by programs such as calendar(1) which
use cpp to parse untrusted user files -- without this change (and the corresponding
change to calendar(1)), any user can cause a denial-of-service for the daily
calendar -a run by #include'ing a named pipe.

Many thanks to christos@netbsd for his help in polishing this.
