Subject: Reinstate OpenVMS support in Bit::Vector
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
Hello, I tried to install Bit::Vector 7.1 with Perl 5.12.2 on OpenVMS 8.3-1H1, but failed. This is due to the fact that the routine names BitVector_lsb BitVector_LSB and BitVector_msb BitVector_MSB in Vector.xs resolve under standard compilation in OpenVMS to the same (uppercase) names. This had been fixed in Bit::Vector in the past. I still had a 6.4 version around and applying the same solution to the current 7.1 gave a perfectly working result for me: *** Vector.xs.orig 2010-12-10 05:07:47.134740750 -0600 --- Vector.xs 2010-12-10 05:09:51.415677099 -0600 *************** *** 1496,1502 **** else BIT_VECTOR_OBJECT_ERROR; } ! void BitVector_LSB(reference,bit) BitVector_Object reference --- 1496,1505 ---- else BIT_VECTOR_OBJECT_ERROR; } ! #ifdef VMS ! #pragma names save ! #pragma names as_is ! #endif void BitVector_LSB(reference,bit) BitVector_Object reference *************** *** 1539,1544 **** --- 1542,1550 ---- } else BIT_VECTOR_OBJECT_ERROR; } + #ifdef VMS + #pragma names restore + #endif boolean If would be great if you would be willing to add this again to the next version of Bit::Vector Greetings, Martin

Of course I will fix this in the next release! I don't even understand how this fix got lost in the first place. Sorry for that! However, tuits are rather scarce at the moment. Fixing this might take a considerable amount of time.
