Sorry about the mistake. I just wanted to tie the thread started here,
reported the problem and to which Corinna responded, with my research on
the main list.
I do understand that problem reports go to the main list, even for apps.
Actually, now that I've generated a fix for the problem, as it turns
out, this *is* an issue for cygwin-apps.
Fixing the problem requires generating a new DLL with a new export --
fdopen64. If there are any packages built which use fdopen they could
conceivably fail in the same manner as patch. Sigh.
This means that we may have to go through the "rebuild packages" exercise
again for cygwin 1.5.1. I will release a 1.5.1 version of cygwin shortly
after generating a snapshot.
I'm still working on understing how you are handling the 64 bit exports,
but that's my problem. In the meantime, if we want to apply your newlib
patch locally, how are you planning to export fdopen64() and
fdopen64_r() from cygwin.din? Are the any further modifications needed
to the winsup/cygwin source to support your implimentation?
