Description Michael Meeks 2012-04-03 09:42:26 UTC
The basic/ module contains a number of unpleasant explicit prototypes, eg.

git grep -5 implGetWeek

that should be grouped into an internal header in basic/source/inc (I expect) - if a suitable one doesn't exist, then we should add a new one :-)

Thanks !

Proposed patch

Is the attached what you are after?

Do I need to include a file in the header for sal_Int? It seems to compile as is.

Should the inline function implGetDayMonthYear be moved too?

Yes - exactly what I'm looking for :-) nice work; pushed to master.

> Should the inline function implGetDayMonthYear be moved too?

if it's only used in the same module, that's not a big deal I think; it's the cross-module header avoidance hacks I wanted to cleanup.

Thanks muchly ! :-) are you interested in a juicier bigger hack by any chance ? :-) I have a number of un-filed fun pet hacks here if you want to drop me a mail ;-) or is there some area that particularly interests you ?
