See description on Stackoverflow.com


How to repeat:
compile and link this sample with gcc 4.9.3

#include <string.>
#include <my_global.h>
#include <mysql.h>

int main()
    mysql_init( NULL );

This is the correct sample source:

#include <my_global.h>
#include <mysql.h>

int main()
    mysql_init( NULL );

Hello Peter VARGA,

Thank you for the bug report.
I tried to reproduce the issue at my end using MySQL Connector / C 6.1.6, GCC 5.3.1 but not seeing any warnings while compiling code.
If you can provide more information, feel free to add it to this bug and change the status back to 'Open'.

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.

No, I did not say that compiling fails! The warning appears while linking the test case:

g++ -std=c++11 `mysql_config --include` mysqlBug.cpp -c
No warning!

g++ mysqlBug.o `mysql_config --libs`
The warning:
/usr/lib64/mysql/libmysqlclient.a(ssl.cpp.o): In function `memset':
/usr/include/bits/string3.h:82: warning: memset used with constant zero length parameter; this could be due to transposed parameters
