Subject Re: [PATCH] Proxy Garbage Collection Bug/Win32 PR#4139
Date Mon, 06 Mar 2000 14:33:46 GMT
There are a handful of outstanding Win32 patches that need to be integrated,
Proxy GC being one of them. I plan to spend some time on this next week
(after ApacheCon).

I am not to keen on the way this patch has been coded. It generates
quite a bit of unnecessary code.

By reshuffling a couple of lines, it is possible to make the code
generic to *all* operating systems (except for two or three #ifdeffed
lines for OS/2). The way it is now, there is a Unix chunk, an OS/2 chunk,
a TPF chunk and a Win32 chunk. Totally incomprehensible, and worse, hard
to maintain.

Last week, I posted an update of a patch originally made by Klaus Mueller
and Ben Kummer to this list (including a fix for a minor potential bug
they introduced) and additionally I was able to delete about 30 lines of
redundant code instead of generating 30 extra lines :-)
