The C (GLib) compiler in its present form will generate incorrect code for string lists (i.e. variables of type list<string>) that are
- Passed as a parameter to a method,
- Returned from a method, or
- Assigned a default value.
In each case, the issue relates to the compiler not recognizing a string list is represented as an instance of GLib's GPtrArray, instead of GArray used to represent most other types of lists.
Fixing this will silence a number of compiler warnings when building the generated code.
I noticed that in latest thrift v0.9.2, the C (GLib) compiler and library to add support for implementing servers.
But in my case, I got some compiling warnings in when compiling the generated server side code after upgrade to 0.9.2. Actually, I just use thrift c glib in client side, Is it possible to generate the client side code only?
