tools for porting

Post by revelator »

As some probably know i been working on my own ports of some posix tools through the years, so i decided that others could have good use of some of the porting tools i been working on and with.

I will upload sources for those to my sourceforge account.

It includes things like ->

plibc: an allmost complete port of libc to windows, only downside is that you need the plibc dll and it can be a little hard to work with because it requires some changes to your sources (can not be used statically atm so like cygwin apps it depends on a posix layer dll, might be possible to rewrite it to output a static library but i had no luck so far).
mman-win32: based on the mman-win32 port from google-code that mostly worked but the code was a bit incomplete so i added the missing functions. Also works on x64 now (can be used statically).
dlfcn-win32: a port of the posix dlfcn, small bugfixes and x64 fixes added by me (can be used statically).
Productivity is a state of mind.
