Subject Re: Compiling Etch: C Binding Runtime
Date Mon, 15 Aug 2011 20:24:34 GMT
Hello again,

I would like to provide one further piece of information. I have managed to
link now, after further modifications of the compilation scripts. On of the
changes I made was to eliminate the "-m32" compilation option in the C
binding since this prevents linking with our 64-bit libraries (and we prefer
64 bit). However, the unit tests do not all work. Two suites die with
segmentation faults, and the majority terminate with the following assertion

new_id_name: Assertion `result != -1' failed.

Please see the attached file with output from the failed test cases.

Why does the UNIX compilation default to 32 bit? Could my compilation in 64
bit mode be related to the failed unit tests? What is the current
status/maturity of the C binding?

Thanks, and all the best,
