Geomview For Windows?
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
Hello, The objects in the forms library archive were shipped COFF. I supposed you know about the 5.0 linker and how it refuses to link with COFF objects (produced up to 4.0.5). Is the new release of Geomview not meant to compile under 5.0 for some reason (I didn't see any mention of this in the announce I got in the mail) or was this just oversight? We moved to 5.1 across all machines several months ago, to avoid things like the COFF/ELF problem... Anyway, I tried to see if I could just apply the FORMS-2.0-PATCHES and make my own libforms.a. But forms is up to 2.2 now and the source for 2.0 isn't available (at least not at the author's site.) 2.2 actually has quite a few changes over 2.0, like for instance fonts seem to be redefined, so it looks like more work than I thought. Can you make an ELF version of libforms.a available? If you've gone to the trouble to make a forms-2.0+ tar file, couldn't you include an intact 2.0 distribution with it as well? (Sorry if that has been corrected since I last ftp's geomview-src.tar.Z -- I see that this file has since been repacked, but my ftp connections tend to break in the middle and I haven't been able to get it through so far.) I'd really like to get into the new version. mfg.
