Proposed patch

Changing C++ comment style to C comment style resolves the issue.

Fix checked in on trunk. Leaving bug open in order to fix this on the branch as

Checking in nsDebug.h;
/cvsroot/mozilla/xpcom/glue/nsDebug.h,v  <--  nsDebug.h
new revision: 1.22; previous revision: 1.21

pldhash.c shouldn't include nsDebug.h, which is a C++ header.  It ought to be
able to include prlog.h if all it needs is PR_ASSERT.
Comment 4 User image Benjamin Smedberg [:bsmedberg] 2005-09-08 10:11:46 PDT
nsDebug.h is no longer a C++ header, and this code was expcitly introduced to
avoid the NSPR dependency. See bug 306334.

Yikes, and it still uses the very C++-ish (for our tree) inter-caps filename?
Comment 6 User image Benjamin Smedberg [:bsmedberg] 2005-09-14 07:04:20 PDT
pwk, can you get this landed on branch also?

I may not have a chance to get this landed for a couple of days.
Comment 8 User image Scott MacGregor 2005-09-27 15:51:34 PDT
this needs to get landed on the branch ASAP or it may not make it into the next

Fixed on the 1.8 branch.
