I don't object to members suggesting alternatives to MinGW tools; nor
I did I indend to imply that we should prohibit the posting of such
suggestions on these lists.

What I *do* object to, is the blatantly misleading manner in which this
particular suggestion, of an alternative to MinGW's `ld', advertised it
as `a drop-in replacement' for the standard offering; it doesn't support
the full gamut of `ld' switches, so it most definitely does not fulfil
the implied promise.  None the less, it may still be of interest to some
users, on the basis of its claimed speed advantage.  I think it is good
that users are made aware of such alternatives, but please, be honest
about their limitations.

Regards,
Keith.

Building GCC 4.1.1


Hi

Is it possible to build GCC 4.1.1 from source using MingW.  
If so, where can I find some info on how to do this?

I wish to try out variadic templates as recently posted on comp.std.c++.
This requires applying patches to GCC 4.1.1 and rebuilding.

Thanks
Graeme

It should be possible, but may not be easy.  YMMV.

> If so, where can I find some info on how to do this?

Ranjit Mathew recently posted a link to his site, either on this
list, or on mingw-msys.  There he describes how he did it for GCJ;
please search the archives.  IIRC, he reported the native build
to be so painfully slow, that he ended up using GNU/Linux to
cross-build his MinGW hosted compiler suite.

Regards,
Keith.

TMT_TEXTSHADOWCOLOR wrongly defined

Hi,
I am using w32 api version 3.6. It appears that TMT_TEXTSHADOWCOLOR is 
wrongly defined to 3817.

uxtheme.h:#define TMT_TEXTSHADOWCOLOR 0x0EE9

It should instead be defined to 3818.

Looking into uxtheme.h it appears as if a whole block of constants
had been defined to the wrong values by means of a typo. Se below
the constants involved and what they should be.

#define TMT_GRADIENTCOLOR4 0x0EE5
#define TMT_GRADIENTCOLOR5 0x0EE6
#define TMT_SHADOWCOLOR 0x0EE7
#define TMT_GLOWCOLOR 0x0EE8
#define TMT_TEXTBORDERCOLOR 0x0EE9
#define TMT_TEXTSHADOWCOLOR 0x0EEA
#define TMT_GLYPHTEXTCOLOR 0x0EEB
#define TMT_GLYPHTRANSPARENTCOLOR 0x0EEC
#define TMT_FILLCOLORHINT 0x0EED
#define TMT_BORDERCOLORHINT 0x0EEE
#define TMT_ACCENTCOLORHINT 0x0EEF

I'll submit a patch.

Thanks for catching that, best,
Michael

Looking at the headers supplied by MS isn't correct.  We will need 
documentation references to accept any patch.

I am just curious: What are other possibilities to get these constants? 
AFAIK, the header is the only possible source, as long as you are not 
going to reverse-engineer the theming .dll. It even seems that right 
now, uxtheme.h is the only complete public documentation to XP theming 
API....

The best you can hope is to find some documentation that have taken them 
from the header.

(Please note I am not discussing the policy, I think it is correct. Just 
being curious...).

Nowhere in the mail of the OP nor in my mail were MS supplied headers
mentioned. I for that didn't look into MS supplied headers but looked
at the w32api supplied header. As I wrote in my last mail, the
definition of a couple of headers is obviously (at leat I think it is
obvious) off by 1, presumably due to a cut-n-paste error when originally
creating them. Or does anybody believe TMT_GRADIENTCOLOR3 and
TMT_GRADIENTCOLOR4 had been defined to the same constant deliberately ?

I also searched the wine headers, specifically tmschema.h and there
I found the same constant defined to the value the OP claimed.

AFAIC this was an _additional_ indication as to the bug in uxtheme.h
but IMO realizing TMT_GRADIENTCOLOR3 and TMT_GRADIENTCOLOR4 are
defined equal would have been sufficient in it's own right.

Let me reiterate:
No MS supplied headers were knowingly involved in creating this patch.

Best,
Michael

There are a few constants that had not been "valued" outside of
MS supplied headers AFAIK.

And even then you probably would not be able to find the match between
symbolic name and numerical value in all cases.

Whether such information is restrictable or not in the first place is
a completely different issue (and I won't want to discuss it here).

Best,
Michael

64Bit binaries on 64Bit Windows


Hello,

i want to know if it's possible or planned in the near future to support
the building of 64Bit binaries on a 64Bit Windows platform with MinGW.
I've searched several mailing lists, but i actually haven't found a
clear  answer to this question.

Thanks for your help,

Richard
