Description From 2012-10-07 20:23:25 CET
If I make a function like this:

 static private string _sprintf(int mode) { ... }

then the compiler gives me a warning:

 Warning: _sprintf is private but not used anywhere.

But the warning is incorrect.  _sprintf is used as an lfun.

The warning is correct; private lfuns won't get called.

Wrong.  private lfuns work just fine:

Pike v7.9 release 5 running Hilfe v3.5 (Incremental Pike Frontend)
> class A { static private string _sprintf(int t) { return "Hello"; }};
Compiler Warning: 1: _sprintf is private but not used anywhere.
> A();
(1) Result: Hello

The only problem is the warning.

Aha. This is due to a somewhat obscure behavior in
really_low_find_shared_string_identifier(), which returns private symbols even
if not SEE_PRIVATE if the symbol isn't inherited.

Fixed the warning. Private non-lfuns will still be complained about.
