When you clear a flag, the tree traverse order is not a big deal.
So, you can use for_all_symbols() iterator.


Could you send v2 with the following code ?



for_all_symbols(i, sym)
sym->flags &= ~SYMBOL_WRITTEN;



This is quite simple, so you do not need to create a
new helper function for this.


Thanks.
