I am running into in a situation with other C code where a call to iconv
and passing in a non-const source buffer would result in a build
warning. Others who use the same code on other platforms do not report
In tracking down the issue, I have discovered that there may be a
difference in the iconv.h header file used on FreeBSD versus Mac/Linux
line 48 shows that call to iconv
size_t iconv (iconv_t /*cd*/,
char ** __restrict /*inbuf*/, size_t * __restrict /*inbytesleft*/,
char ** __restrict /*outbuf*/, size_t * __restrict /*outbytesleft*/);
/usr/local/include/iconv.h, line 83, shows something rather different.
Even the commentary around the code is different.
extern size_t iconv (iconv_t cd, const char* * inbuf, size_t
*inbytesleft, char* * outbuf, size_t *outbytesleft);
My question is this, are we using a different or FreeBSD-specific
version of iconv?
