Subject Re: Apache NT release
Date Thu, 29 Jul 1999 19:00:08 GMT
Since I haven't introduced myself yet, here's a very brief intro:
I'm a software developer from central Mass.  I've been programming as 
a hobby in various "languages" including BASIC, sh/csh/tcsh, C, Perl, 
and C++ for about 15 years now.  During my years at WPI, I spent a 
lot of time exploring the UNIX systems, including a year or so 
running my own DECStation.  Since then, I've been writing software 
under Windows (NT preferred) for almost three years now, 2 1/2 
professionally.  I do still have access to development tools on the 
UNIX machines at WPI, but use them much less frequently now, doing 
the majority of my work on WinNT, both at work and at home.

While reading the archives, I noticed some discussion a few months 
back about converting the .DSP files for compiling under NT/95 to 
Visual C++ 6.0, and for building the release using 6.0.  I noticed 
that the projects are still version 5.  Are there any plans to 
convert them to 6.0, or to use 6.0 to produce the binaries?  I posted 
some changes recently that could be made to the DSP files to make 
things easier for debugging, but since I only have 6.0 installed, I 
could only post a textual description of the changes rather than a 
patch to the DSPs, since the patch would convert them to 6.0.

Some of the changes to the projects would produce .pdb files for all 
DLLs in the distribution, even in release mode.  If these were 
produced, it might be worthwhile to include them as a separate 
optional component of the custom install.
