o joy o joy.
also, i found _this_!!!
which is an implementation of pthreads on win32.
_also_ i found - was reminded - by judicious searching on google, that
of course entegrity.com have "PC-DCE" which is of course a _commercial_
product that has done exactly the work required: making dce (1.1?
1.2.2?) compile on Win32.
including exceptions, dealing with mapping the names, blah blahhh.
anyone got any brainy ideas on how to reverse dceport.h - in particular
the thingy. wotsit. TRY/FINALLY/CATCH stuff?
what i'm going to try to do is take a shot at simply compiling
dcethreads - on win32.
if that _works_ (the tests pass) it'll be great - it will prove two
things: 1) that pthreads-win32 works 2) that the dce exception handling
will fly, on win32, and _that_ means pretty much zero (urk! let's hope!)
my main goal: "GetItWorking(tm)".
i couldn't care less about binary compatibility for now: i want
"services" - i want srvsvcd, i want winregd, i want lsarpcd, i want
samrd - all compiled, all working, using TCP/IP.
i can then work on rewriting freedce's ntlmsspauth.so to be a DLL
(starting off as my favourite - a stub with username and password of
i can then work on writing an "ncalrpc" plugin transport (which is very
straightforward: a matter of filling in about 25 functions in a vector
and also on a ncacn_np plugin transport.
"working" means that other people will then be able to focus on issues
like binary compatibility.
guys (wine team) i have to say this. you were utterly insane to not use
freedce as your starting point - and i am still bewildered by you not
even looking at its source code (which is topologically identical in
almost all areas, to what you've created) or the opengroup's documentation.
i say that with the greatest of respect for what you've achieved without
