Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Undoing a Macro

If you happen to define an object or a function or a constant whose name collides with a macro located elsewhere in a third-party header file, as in:

  // file defs.h 
  //...many declaration
  #define PI 3.14

  // your program:
  #include "defs.h"
  const double PI = 3.14159265358; // error, 'PI' redefined

you can use the #undef preprocessor directive to cancel a previously-defined macro:

  #include "defs.h"
  #undef PI  // from now on, ignore the PI macro
  const double PI = 3.14159265358979 // OK
