Hiding a standard library function in c++I have a function abs in one of the libraries and I wanted to use that function by linking to that library.But I am facing this error below:
function abs used is #define abs(x) (x > 0) ? x : -(x).This is obviously from the standard includes that I used. So I found a some very nice ways to overcome this problem :
- Wrapping the function name abs in parenthesis has resolved the problem right away.
- Using the preprocessor directives Before you call the function abc in the library.
