61/* A problem turned up with PCRE_PRERELEASE, which is defined empty for
62production releases. Originally, it was used naively in this code:
63
64 return XSTRING(PCRE_MAJOR)
65 "." XSTRING(PCRE_MINOR)
66 XSTRING(PCRE_PRERELEASE)
67 " " XSTRING(PCRE_DATE);
68
69However, when PCRE_PRERELEASE is empty, this leads to an attempted expansion of
70STRING(). The C standard states: "If (before argument substitution) any
71argument consists of no preprocessing tokens, the behavior is undefined." It
72turns out the gcc treats this case as a single empty string - which is what we
73really want - but Visual C grumbles about the lack of an argument for the
74macro. Unfortunately, both are within their rights. To cope with both ways of
75handling this, I had resort to some messy hackery that does a test at run time.
76I could find no way of detecting that a macro is defined as an empty string at
77pre-processor time. This hack uses a standard trick for avoiding calling
78the STRING macro with an empty argument when doing the test. */
