Your patch is rather clean, so this should not be a problem. >> 2) If not, do you know how to cross-compile it on linux ? >> (I have a mingw32 cross-compiler already). > I didn't try to cross-compile it (because I don't have linux box around) I tried to cross-compile it and that worked fine. The trick is to use wine to run the tests from Configure and dotest. I will try to document how I did it, but it was very straightforward. Probably I will set up a cross-compiler as a test build system. >> 3) Did you try to run "make test-all" or only "make bench" ? > I did test-all. Benchmarks and failed test logs attached. Good! make test-all also work with the cross-compiled version under wine. >> 4) Would the hires plotting also work with Visual C++ ? > It should. However, I didnt try to compile GP with VC Good! I cannot get the hires plotting to work under wine thought, and the terminal support has some glitches (the prompt is printed too late). Now my question is, is there a simple way to convert files from DOS to UNIX using MSYS, like sed -e 's/\r//g' ? We could use it in dotest instead of diff -wb Your code do: nm --defined-only ... However it does not work when cross-compiling (I need to use a cross-nm). Is there no way to do that using gcc directly ? Well I found: NM = `$CC -print-prog-name=nm 2>/dev/null` \$(NM) --defined-only ... but maybe there is a better way. Cheers, Bill.
