Hi Everyone,

I think something is borked with the Cygwin headers. If I am parsing
and correctly, it
should be sufficient to define _XOPEN_SOURCE to 600. From the section
"The _XOPEN_SOURCE Feature Test Macro":

Since this volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 is aligned with the ISO C
standard, and since all functionality enabled by _POSIX_C_SOURCE set
equal to 200112L is enabled by _XOPEN_SOURCE set equal to 600, there
should be no need to define _POSIX_C_SOURCE if _XOPEN_SOURCE is so
defined. Therefore, if _XOPEN_SOURCE is set equal to 600 and
_POSIX_C_SOURCE is set equal to 200112L, the behavior is the same as
if only _XOPEN_SOURCE is defined and set equal to 600...

I would still appreciate some help in working around the compile failures.


hi Jeff,
