FYI,  I had errors when running "gmake check" as part of my build/install of systemc-2.3.1a.  I modified './src/systemc.h' line 120 from "using std::gets" to "using std::fgets".  The "gmake check" did complete execution after I made this change.  Although other warnings were thrown.  I am using gcc 4.8.5 that has g++ version 6.2.1 20160826  (openSUSE Leap 42.2 x86_64).

Observation: gets() is now considered forbidden in C since it is the cause of many hack attacks to create buffer overflow. get_s is recommended because it puts an upper limit on the number of acceptable characters. Although C++ std::string can handle large strings, it could still be an issue.

I am not saying you should never use it, but please be aware. I realize our SystemC activities are usually confined to safe internal use only situations, but I can forsee examples on the open web that might lead to an issue.

[Note: I teach C/C++ security courses in addition to my SystemC activities..]
