Patch by Stefan Huehner / stefan % huehner ! org \
patch replaces '()' for the correct '(void)' in function
declarations/prototypes which have no parameters. The '()' syntax tell
thats there is a variable list of arguments, so that the compiler cannot
check this. The extra CFLAG '-Wstrict-declarations' shows those cases.
Comments about a similar patch applied to ffmpeg:
That in C++ these mean the same, but in ANSI C the semantics are
different; function() is an (obsolete) K&R C style forward declaration,
it basically means that the function can have any number and any types
of parameters, effectively completely preventing the compiler from doing
any sort of type checking. -- Erik Slagter
Defining functions with unspecified arguments is allowed but bad.
With arguments unspecified the compiler can't report an error/warning
if the function is called with incorrect arguments. -- MÃ¥ns RullgÃ¥rd
