Description Gordon Jin 2009-12-28 00:47:25 UTC
piglit/tests/glslparsertest/shaders/function3.frag expects to be compiled fail
because it writes to a "const" variable (which is defined as read-only in GLSL

void function(const int i)  
    i = 3;  // const value cant be modified

But it gets compiled successfully in mesa.
Comment 1 Gordon Jin 2010-01-11 21:54:07 UTC
piglit/tests/glslparsertest/shaders/struct9.frag fails with similar issue:

const struct s {
    int i;
} s1 = s(1);

void main()
   s1.i = 1;  // const struct members cannot be modified
Comment 2 Eric Anholt 2010-08-17 09:12:52 UTC
Fixed with glsl2 merge.
Comment 3 Gordon Jin 2010-08-18 19:23:59 UTC
verified with mesa master d442a01ac14382d83cdaac87d2832315ceb3e963
