Subject RE: [activemq-cpp] It now compiles under cygwin
Date Tue, 03 Oct 2006 18:07:54 GMT
There are some issues using the cygwin compiler, mainly that the tests
won't pass as the sockets all break for strange reasons.  Although Mingw
isn't much better in this regard.  It did also seem to have trouble
compiling under cygwin on various machines for reason that I could never
explain (oh the joy of using Cygwin).  I've got no problem using it so
long as it works :)

I tried running the autogen.sh in my cygwin bash shell and this is what
I get

/usr/share/aclocal/pstoedit.m4:7: warning: underquoted definition of
AM_PATH_PSTOEDIT
  run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
  or see

      If this token and others are legitimate, please use
m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.

This may present some problems for people on older Solaris machines such
as Solaris 8, as there aren't really any distributions on newer versions
of the tools being maintained anymore.  It looks like it might be okay
on my Solaris 10 machine, but I'd have to install CPPUNIT first.  

We are using CPP_UNIT 1.11.6 btw.
