Re: [patch #4206] libobjc: Extend protocol hack to all gcc versions

More Information:

the libobjc in gcc's CVS server doesn't have any implementation in thr-win32.c and doesn't build as a dll. (Actually I can't figure how to get it to build at all w/o building all of gcc.)

I can't send in the thr-win32.c implementation from gnustep because it's not mine.

I can't solve this problem, please commit my patch to gnustep-libobjc, so that at least windows users can use Protocols.

Why is this my problem.

Look at http://wwwmain.gnustep.org/resources/downloads.php?site=http%3A%2F%2Fftpmain.gnustep.org%2Fpub%2Fgnustep%2F
Notice how it has listed libobjc as prereq on windows.
See the link to http://ftpmain.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/libs/gnustep-objc-1.3.0.tar.gz
Notice how that is NOT GCC's libobjc.
See my patch to that code.

I don't really care what libobjc GCC has because I have to use gnustep's.

Feel free to fix any of the steps that got us to this point, but don't tell me that I am not using the right software when I followed the published instructions.

Stay calm ...

Andrew is familiar with gcc, but not windows, you are familiar with building GNUstep on windows, and neither of you know each others background ... you just have two different viewpoints and I'm sure there is no intention on either part to be awkward.

As far as I know (and I could be wrong on this) ... the libobjc provided in the GNUstep CVS is a version which has been hacked to build nicely on windows export the symbols windows needs in the way it needs them etc (I don't know the details), but the mainline libobjc in the gcc project lacks these modifications. On the other hand, the gcc version has various bugfixes which are not in the version on gnustep cvs.

If this is not the case ... and the main gcc version of the library is fine on windows, then the instructions we have for running gnustep on windows are out of date ... and it would be good to know that so we can change them.

If it is the case, the pair of you could do everyone a favour by finding out what needs to be done to the main gcc version of the library to make it usable with gnustep under windows, and get the changes into the main version ... so we can remove the library from gnustep cvs.

I'm hoping to see something productive come of this.

Gcc has a libobjc also, but the code I patched was from gnustep's CVS
server, not gcc's.

Let's take one step at a time.

The GNUstep's libobjc really should be removed now as it does not contain all the fixes which are in the GCC's CVS. And the libobjc in GCC is upstream
so the bug should be submitted there first.  This might turn out to be a
front-end bug if you submit a bug to GCC's bug database.
