At worse, we can disable alamr in Configure, bug I used alarm instead of setitimer/getitimer because alarm is available in UNIX v7...I attach a patch that check for alamr in Configure and set HAS_ALARM accoridingly. I suppose it address your issue since since HAS_ALARM is notdefined in Odos/paricfg.h. However it would be better to add an alternativeimplementation for MSVC.
Thanks , I'll look in to an alternative , it can certainly be done using threads , but there must be an easier way , I'll ask someone who knows...
Are you running the Configure script ?
Not using the configure script directly for MSVC.
I really wonder if there are system where Configure is used and alarm does not exist. If not, the Configure part of the patch is useless.
MSYS/MinGW32/64 runs the Configure script and does not have alarm , this is quite likely to be the only one , ever , unless Microsfot ship a bash shell :)
