c++ - tell is a macro, why?

Hi,

We started with some test porting of ACE/TAO (see www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt 
and www.theaceorb.nl) to the DMC compiler. We have in a class a method tell, 
now we found that DMC defnes tell as macro, resulting in some problems. Any 
option that tell is not defined in the future as macro by DMC?

Regards,

Johnny Willemsen

From io.h

#define _chsize chsize
#define tell( handle ) _lseek( handle, 0L, SEEK_CUR )
#define _tell tell

For now, I suggest just adding a:
    #undef tell
in the file that has the problem with tell.

Hi,

Yes, I can do that, but what about the future, will tell then not be defined 
as a macro?

It'll probably stay as a macro.

I would regret that, ACE/TAO is very portable and I don't like hacking in the header files just for DMC Johnny
