Re: [igraph] Building igraph 0.6 rev 1601 with msvc9

After rebuilding with libxml2, the igraph.Graph.Read_GraphML (Python) call results in an application crash.

I get an "Access violation reading location ..." in ntdll.dll

I rebuilt libxml2 from scratch with msvc9 first.

And I was so close... other things seem to be working as I can create graphs and whatnot.

I added #include "igraph_math.h" to foreign-ncol-parser.c, foreign-lgl-parser.c, bliss_bignum.hh, and centrality.c

Also added the definition for igraph_i_snprintf under the
'#ifdef _MSC_VER' and after  '#define snprintf igraph_i_snprintf'

All dependencies resolved... NICE!

C Language Reference
Inline Functions

Microsoft Specific

The __inline keyword tells the compiler to substitute the code within the function definition for every instance of a function call. However, substitution occurs only at the compiler's discretion. For example, the compiler does not inline a function if its address is taken or if it is too large to inline.

For a function to be considered as a candidate for inlining, it must use the new-style function definition.

Just make sure that jives with what you want, especially that "at the compiler's discretion" part.

The inline keyword is available only in C++. The __inline and __forceinline keywords are available in both C and C++. For compatibility with previous versions, _inline is a synonym for __inline.

That's the C++ documentation. They don't even mention __inline in the C documentation part.

Thanks for the updates Tamas, they will help out. There were a few other files missing from the msvc project that I added. They were relatively easy to pick out through trial and error though. I'll post/upload the project file when I have the last unresolved symbol figured out.

Yeah, while inline is a C99 standard keyword it seems like in MSVC only C++ recognizes inline, but C recognizes __inline. After a quick web search, it looks like many others had this issue too. They basically did the same thing you did to redefine inline to __inline. I'd still like to know why!

Hi guys. I just built igraph 0.6 from bzr rev 1601 on Windows with msvc9 (VS 2008). I had to make changes in 2 files:
Fixed as well -- added M_SQRT2 to igraph_math.h and included it from src/centrality.c. I'm not sure about the inline stuff -- I thought that inline is a valid C keyword, but it looks like we have to live with a compiler-related hack here. Something like:

#if defined(_MSC_VER)
#  define inline __inline

I added the above code snippet to src/heap.c, hope this helps.
