Bash Version: 2.05a
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        The HP-UX ANSI C compiler complains about the following error while
trying to compile bash 2.05a on HP-UX 11.00 with the HP ANSI C compiler:

        cc: "printf.def", line 1013: error 1718: Types are not
        make[1]: *** [printf.o] Error 1

        This is somewhat strange because strtold(3C) returns type long
double and ret is of type long double.

        CC="cc" CFLAGS="+O2" ./configure --prefix=/opt/gnu

        According to Mrs. Katharina Christen from HP Support Germany the
function strtold() does not return the type long double but long_double and
she stated that the man page for strtold(3C) on HP-UX 11.00 is incorrect.
The HP-UX 11.X release notes suggest the work-around that is contained in
the attached patch. strtold() shouldn't be used in new applications.

        bash 2.05a compiles after applying this patch.
