I'm currently looking into the qsort declaration within msvc... maybe I can use it directly instead.
What is the error you are getting?
And no, you certainly should not use the Microsoft-provided version, unless you want to keep the bugs it has
So, can you cite the error you are getting?
ok then... it seems like its part of the stdlib tree, so not much I can do to not include it.. we should just give it a new name within our codebase then. I checked and its only used 4 times in the complete code base... not a big issue to fix.
bug is 'qsort' : inconsistent dll linkage
basically a redecleration
I guess I'd just set I_AM_QSORT_R so that the ifdef in the code triggers and use qsort_r in the string! and block! code.
I guess "qsort_r" stands for qsort redefinition
ah no... its a different func spec... ignore that... I'll just change the qsort name to uc_qsort (uc for university of california)
don't change the original source if possible, please
well, this is part of porting code to different compilers and toolchains. for example, the static inline hints are different in msvc nothing I can do there. I added an #ifdef setup for that with comments explaining why.
I'm not playing inside the algorithm. but if the name of the function causes errors in the compiler, I can't just wish it to go away.
but (apart from the fact that Rebol links are outdated) When doing make prep R3 crashes with error #1405. If I use r3bazaar It can not find gcc, then if I copy MinGW/bin/gcc to MinGW/msys/bin the process stops with error: CreateProcess: not such file or directory AND THEN I GAVE UP !
"Does anyone have already successfully done it?" - I did it
