Software News   Software News : clib2 1.203 for AmigaOS
   posted by ssolie on 29-Apr-2008 18:39:59 (4113 reads)
An update to clib2 is now available from SourceForge with some bug fixes and rewritten ARexx variable interface code.

-Read More-


c.lib 1.203 (28.4.2008)

- Added 68k stubs to amiga_rexxvars.c for the OS4 build to use. The new code now
works just about exactly like the amiga.lib RVI code used to do, which means
that there is no artificial length limit for the number of characters a string
retrieved may have, and the code is largely reentrant.

- To work around a bug in the Roadshow TCP/IP stack (since fixed), the waitselect()
function now substitutes a 10 microsecond timeout for a zero length timeout.

- isatty() no longer crashes if passed a socket rather than a file.

- Rewrote the GetRexxVar()/SetRexxVar() functions (mostly) in 'C', using available
code as a reference. The 68k stubs currently only work for the 68k version of
the library, and a solution for the OS4 build still needs to be found. The code
is currently untested, but it should be complete.

- The printf() family now ignores argument specifications, as in "%2$d %1$d",
which are used for localization on some platforms. This is a non-standard
feature and the way clib2 treats it for now is just intended to avoid
trouble while performing the conversion.

- [tboeckel]: when compiling amiga_rexxvars.c for m68k/OS3 the GetRexxVarFromMsg()
and SetRexxVarFromMsg() can no longer cause linkage errors if the header files
predate the SDK for OS 3.5.

- [jlangner]: the log() and log10() functions always returned -inf() even if the
arguments was within the valid range for a log() function. Using DBL_EPSILON as
the threshold was not correct as EPSILON is 2.2204460492503131E-16 whereas
values like 1E-200 are still valid double values for a log().

A small but still welcome update.

The link from Switch seems in fact to be broken, and it seems like the "Select a different mirror" link doesn't work on IBrowse.

EDIT: ok, found out to change mirror, but every one I'm trying doesn't host the file.

There seems to be a problem with Sourceforge itself, this morning the entire server seems offline.

This has been going on for a bit longer. I had great difficulties making this release appear on the server when I finished it

There's still work to be done. For now, I wanted to release the log() bug fixes and the Rexx Variables Interface (RVI) code, before I got bogged down in other development work again.

Sourceforge is back online now, but the download link is still broken. What about releasing the os4 version on os4depot, and both versions on aminet, in the meanwhile?

Hi @ olsen,

ABC-shell has a lot of anomalies. Will this Re: clib2 1.203 for AmigaOS
affect the shell?
Thanks for the great works that go into OS4.0!

Looks like the files did not enter the distribution process proper. When I've finished doing what's currently keeping my computer really busy, I'll upload those files again. This time, hopefully, the download links will work out.

If this still doesn't improve within the next 4-8 hours, please let me know.

Edited to add: having uploaded the files about an hour ago, I just tried downloading them through the mirrors, and it worked. Now, please try again...

I have no idea. The things I updated recently will have an impact, but how this relates to ABC-shell properties I cannot tell.

I was told that there are bugs in clib2 which affect other software. However, that's all I heard. A bug that needs to be fixed should be reported on the sourceforge web site for clib2 so that it can be tracked, and fixed at some point. Otherwise, it's not going to get much attention

Great Had it not been for the general sourceforge.net/slashdot.org downtime, the files would have been available a lot earlier.

Now, if anybody here or elsewhere wants to see clib2 development continue, pick up or even go so far as introducing new and unheard of features, please submit enhancement requests and bug reports

I've tried to read more about it and found it's not VBCC compatible, does VBCC uses it's own incompatible C runtime environment ?

Thanks Olsen,

I asked because Henning brought it up in the ABC-shell reports. OK, I'll checkout some those 'behaviors' he talked about! :)
