Description (last modified by Gedare Bloom)

Next to cpukit/libfs/src/rfs/rtems-rfs-rtems-dir.c:145
you find this code:

if (rc > 0)

bytes_transfered = rtems_rfs_rtems_error ("dir_read: dir read", rc);



The bytes_transfered = rtems_rfs_rtems_error (...) doesn't seem right to me:

  • rtems_rfs_rtems_error returns a boolean error.

=> I doubt adding such a boolean error to a size is right

Replying to comment:16:

This is a bug. I propose to:

int rc;
ssize_t bytes_transferred;
return (ssize_t) bytes_transferred;

In this case you can remove the cast.

readdir(2) is not relevant for us. We have to look at getdents() used by Newlib 'libc/posix/readdir.c' and 'libc/posix/readdir_r.c'.

This is no bug. The return from rtems_rfs_rtems_error is -1 for an error code, which is fine to return as an ssize_t.
