Subject Re: apr_hook_global_pool is not initialized by apr_initialize
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2003 20:56:47 GMT
anybody cares to comment on this?

I have worked around this, doing:

#include "apr_hooks.h"
static void extra_apr_init(void)
{
     if (apr_hook_global_pool == NULL) {
         apr_pool_t *global_pool;
         apr_status_t rv = apr_pool_create(&global_pool, NULL);
         if (rv != APR_SUCCESS) {
             fprintf(stderr, "Fatal error: unable to create global pool "
                     "for use with by the scoreboard");
         }
         /* XXX: mutex locking? */
         apr_hook_global_pool = global_pool;
     }
}


but shouldn't this be done by apr_initialize?
