Subject Re: LocalMsgIndex.hpp
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2004 00:50:31 GMT
As of Jan 7, based on the patch in CVS, I verified that I can build  
regular Unix shared libraries on Mac OS X 10.3.2. The output is 2  
shared libraries: libxalan and libxalanMsg. This is the good news.

The bad news is that I can't seem to retrofit the new localization  
addition into the OS X IDE easily. This is because the IDE doesn't have  
direct support for Makefile.in, which then generates the Makefile,  
which then generates the required *.hpp files. There's also the  
complication of building the MsgCreator first. If one spends enough  
time on it, it can probably be done but at this point, I just can't  
justify spending more efforts. I'm not sure how other IDEs are  
successful in dealing with these extra steps...

Any way, I guess Mac OS X developers can deal with the .so instead.

Cheers, Han Ming
