[Rd] Compile error in 2004-09-21 R 1.9.1 Patched

Hi all,

I just downloaded the latest R-patched tarball [Version 1.9.1 Patched (2004-09-21)] and ran into an error during compilation. This is on FC2 and the error is as follows:

dounzip.c: In function `do_unzip':
dounzip.c:144: error: syntax error before '/' token make[3]: *** [dounzip.o] Error 1

In reviewing the source file, there appears to be an errant '/' on line 144. A code snippet follows. Note the '/' on the third line below, just before the closing brace:


 / } else {

        for (i = 0; i < nfiles; i++) {

Removal of the character enables successful compilation.

I reviewed the tarballs for the past few days and this appears to be new as of today.

I also checked today's 2.0.0 beta tarball and the errant character is not present in that version.

Best regards,

Marc Schwartz
