Cygwin & path to build file





------- Additional Comments From lukrez@gmx.at  2004-06-11 08:35 -------
Well, I am currently working with GT3.2, the deprecated one. I finally managed
to change the ant wrapper script to convert absolute file paths and made the ant
build scripts work. However, I ran into another build problem when compiling
some C/C++ code. I searched the web for a hint or solution and discovered what
is causing the problem: GT3.2 relies on IPv6 which Cygwin doesn't handle. This
problem is slightly harder to fix on the fly, that's why I finally gave up to
build GT3.2 on Cygwin. Anyway, at least, I learned some shell scripting and I'm
looking forward to do some experiments with GT4.

I had time to reconsider my position and would like to undo this bug report (or
even feature request) due to the mentioned problems. The Cygwin support as
implemented in the wrapper scripts so far should satisfy all programmers who
prefer the cygwin shell to the windows cmd.exe.

The other side is: programmers who intermingle different approaches for building
an application and make a platform-independent tool platform-dependent should
probably rethink the organisation of their applications build process.
