    Release Notes: CRLF endings in the sources were fixed. configure.in was moved to configure.ac and the obsolete constructions were rewritten. 'make install' was fixed and now works on Cygwin (requiring the EXEEXT variable from 'configure').

    •  22 Jan 2005 01:38

      Release Notes: This release adds a missing "configure".

      •  25 Dec 2004 06:12

        Release Notes: This version fixed compilation problems with recent versions of GCC. It also added makefile.vc and libcompface.def files for compiling under MS Windows and generating static and shared libraries. An xbm2xface.pl script was included for generating X-faces.

          Re: compface-1.4
          The fix to compile on a modern system is simple: in cmain.c and uncmain.c, replace the lines

          extern int errno;

          char *strerror();

          char *strerrorwrap();


          by

          #include <errno.h>

          #include <string.h>

          char *strerrorwrap();


          It would be nice if whoever put this project up could take note and make a new release, but the listed project author is the original program author, and there's no email address attached.

          (This is probably what earlier authors in this thread were trying to say, but it seems that the posts here are always displayed as HTML formatted mode, even if you tried to enter raw text, which previewed correctly; this causes include file names to disappear, for example.)

          That fixed it, sorry about double posting, and sorry I
          didn't read all the thread.

          Thanks for your help

          OK, well I added #include to both those files and
          now it fails

          [owen@localhost compface-1.4]$ make
          gcc -c -DSTDC_HEADERS=1 -DHAVE_FCNTL_H=1
          -DHAVE_STRINGS_H=1 -DHAVE_STRERROR=1 -g
          -O2 cmain.c
          cmain.c:17:9: #include expects "FILENAME" or

          make: *** [cmain.o] Error 1

          I might have to try going back to gcc-2.95.3 and see
          if that "fixes" it

          Anyway, thnks for your help
