Bug #53906 Stray semicolon in my_sys.h corrupts macro function definition of MY_INIT

Status: Closed Impact on me:
Category:MySQL Server: C API (client library) Severity:S3 (Non-critical)
Version:5.1.48-bzr OS:Any (Windows, Mac OS X)
Assigned to: Davi Arnaut CPU Architecture:Any
Tags: includes, my_sys.h, sdk, syntax error

Line 40 in the file include/my_sys.h was originally as follows:

 #define MY_INIT(name);  { my_progname= name; my_init(); }

Note the semicolon immediately following MY_INIT(name), which is invalid syntax for this macro function definition.

After removing said semicolon and configuring the Apache Runtime (APR) source includes DEFINE's related to the apr_dbd_mysql project (fixed bugs there too, but that's Apache stuff), I was able successfully build the project with no errors or warnings.

How to repeat:
Include the MySQL API SDK includes and libraries files in an Apache web server build that incorporates the apr_dbd_mysql database libraries project.

Suggested fix:
Remove the stray semicolon referenced above.

corrected misspelling of the word function in synopsis.

include/mysql/my_sys.h in 5.1.48 from bzr still has this exact definition.

Noted in 5.5.5 changelog.

The definition of the MY_INIT macro in my_sys.h included an
extraneous semicolon, which could cause compilation failure.

Setting report to Need Merge pending further pushes.
