[dear ros-dev developers, i'm "on-list" but have "receive postings
disabled" because i have far too much on my plate to deal with right
now.  i'm sorry i haven't got back to people]

saveliy, hi,

you asked if freedce is useable: the answer is yes [with conditions].

freedce is the _reference_ implementation from http://opengroup.org/dce.

and it is autoconf'd.

therefore, asking "is it fully featured" the answer is it _is_ the
features :) :)


microsoft "embraced and extended" DCE/RPC actually the 1.1 reference
implementation because it's OSF 1.1 Free Software BSD-Compatible
license... what am i doing, what am i doing, see this:



i've added certain "missing" features to freedce and it's now
on-wire compatible and IDL-compatible with MSRPC.

what it _doesn't_ yet do is output MSRPC-binary-compatible stuff which
people are referring to on wine lists as "type libraries".

hope this helps.
