Page where function calling, including argument passing, begins. Other bug subscribers Subscribe someone else. Right, in that case you can definitely not assume that the popped value will always equal what you previously pushed.

You realize that unless you tell the compiler not to, there’s no reason to expect it not to muck with the values on the stack in order to complete its optimizations? This information was last pulled 8 hours ago. If this hook returns true, other macros that control bit-field layout are ignored. I compiled with gcc -ggdb3 file.

The callee is free to modify its arguments on the stack ahi386 are treated the same as local variables. I have also looked for documentation including the System V i calling conventions, but was unable to find a definitive answer to this. What may be confusing is that if one passes a POINTER to a value, then the callee can change that value by dereferencing the pointer, but if the callee actually abo386 the pointer itself the caller will not see that change.


Lectures on Memory

R Samuel Klatchko In standard C, the callee can modify the values of its arguments all it wants, but the caller will never see the changes. Better documentation is certainly appreciated, but – what is the bug here?

A full zero for the whole homework or project if ANY of it was a cheat! I would assume that GCC ai386 that parameter on the stack is fine, but I want to know where it is specified that it can do so. Remote bug watches auto-lsbbugs. As far as the callee is concerned, they are the same as local variables. Fall Lecture07 Notes How do you find out how C function calling works with the stack and registers, in our x architecture?

It tends to be somewhat vague about certain things, however Although the caller in some calling conventions is the one that cleans up the arguments, all it’s really doing is deallocating the space previously allocated on the stack to hold the argument values.
