|Title||MPS doesn't compile under Pelles C|
|Assigned user||Gareth Rees|
|Description||Open Dylan use Pelles C  (not Microsoft Visual C/C++) on Windows, because it supports the CodeView debugging information format used by Open Dylan. However, the MPS does not compile under Pelles C. There are several problems:|
(a) Pelles C is not recognized as a supported platform.
(b) Pelles C cannot compile the EVENT_LIST macro, crashing with:
event.c(174): fatal error: Internal error: 'Access violation' at 0x0047b319.
(c) Pelles C provides no definition for the _JUMP_BUFFER structure.
(d) Pelles C has a preprocessor definition for "small", which conflicts with the use of small as a structure member in freelist.c.
|Analysis||We're not planning to make Pelles C into a supported platform at this point. But we're happy to make changes as a favour to Open Dylan.|
Bruce Mitchener provided patches for recognizing Pelles C  and for fixing the other problems .
RB reported the EVENT_LIST crash to the Pelles C developers  and they provided some analysis that might yield a simpler fix.
Bruce's fix for (c) just copies the _JUMP_BUFFER structure definition from Microsoft Visual C/C++. But is this right? RB asked the Pelles C developers whether their setjmp was compatible .
