Fwd: Needs to add patches to gcc-2.8.1.tar.gz

רונן לוי
Hi,

explains how to customize gcc-2.8.1.tar.gz for adding new capabilities in parsing
c++ header files which generates them in XML format.

I have searched how to compile gcc-2.8.1.tar.gz source files (plus patches)
and I came accross Mingw. After installing on windows 7 (32bit machine) I managed
to compile and run "Hello, World" example.

But, the current Mingw binary distribution comes with gcc-4.61...

I downloaded the gcc-2.8.1.tar.gz sources, merged the patches, and now I need
to compile it. For that, I will need some guidance where to start, and how to accomplished this task using Mingw.

Regards,
Ronen

gcc 2.8.1 is very old; it was released in 1998, and the C++ language has
changed since then; other parts of the necessary infrastructure have
changed also, which would make a successful build of 2.8.1 a rather
difficult project, and the result would not be able to compile any code
that makes use of new and changed features of the C++ language
that have appeared in the 17 years since the release of 2.8.1.

It would be better to add the XML capabilities to the current gcc, which
is now at version 5.1.0; This is not the best mailing list for a discussion
of the necessary changes; the discussion of such changes would best
be done on the main gcc mailing list. See https://gcc.gnu.org/lists.html.
