I believe this was done a few months ago on the devel branch.


Oh, thanks, I was looking at the wrong branch.

However, Bash's devel branch still has old-style function definitions and therefore won't compile with a strict C23 compiler. For example, get_variable_value in variables.c is old-style. I assume there would be interest in fixing remaining areas where Bash won't port to C23?
