56 /* These macros are the standard way of turning unquoted text into C strings.
57 They allow macros like PCRE_MAJOR to be defined without quotes, which is
58 convenient for user programs that want to test its value. */

63 /* A problem turned up with PCRE_PRERELEASE, which is defined empty for
64 production releases. Originally, it was used naively in this code:
65
66 return XSTRING(PCRE_MAJOR)
67 "." XSTRING(PCRE_MINOR)
68 XSTRING(PCRE_PRERELEASE)
69 " " XSTRING(PCRE_DATE);
70
71 However, when PCRE_PRERELEASE is empty, this leads to an attempted expansion of
72 STRING(). The C standard states: "If (before argument substitution) any
73 argument consists of no preprocessing tokens, the behavior is undefined." It
74 turns out the gcc treats this case as a single empty string - which is what we
75 really want - but Visual C grumbles about the lack of an argument for the
76 macro. Unfortunately, both are within their rights. To cope with both ways of
77 handling this, I had resort to some messy hackery that does a test at run time.
78 I could find no way of detecting that a macro is defined as an empty string at
79 pre-processor time. This hack uses a standard trick for avoiding calling
80 the STRING macro with an empty argument when doing the test. */
