            Bug ID: 17397
           Summary: Poor diagnostics for missing semicolon before typedef
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: Macintosh
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: cnweaver at gmail.com

    Classification: Unclassified

This is another case which seems similar to bugs 11424 and 11980, but not

For a snippet like:

struct foo{};
struct bar{} //missing semicolon

typedef foo baz;

The diagnostics generated are:

missing_semi_before_typedef.cpp:4:9: error: typedef redefinition with different
types ('struct bar' vs 'foo')
typedef foo baz;
missing_semi_before_typedef.cpp:1:8: note: previous definition is here
struct foo{};
missing_semi_before_typedef.cpp:4:12: error: expected ';' after top level
typedef foo baz;
2 errors generated.

When something more like

missing_semi_before_typedef.cpp:2:13: error: expected ';' after struct
struct bar{} //missing semicolon
1 error generated.

would be preferable (and is exactly what is generated when the line containing
the typedef is not present).
