you can also use vbcc to cross-compile to AmigaOS.
if your code runs under AmigaOS, porting to AROS shouldn't be a problem (using native AROS gcc).
requires some setup (e.g. some AmigaOS), but you get the benefit of an AmigaOS binary. :)

(if you're not interested in supporting AmigaOS, gcc/binutils/... cross-compiler toolchain is probably better suited for you. you can re-use/write more posix/linux/gcc style code, and you skip the whole AmigaOS setup part (e.g. net.lib for networking functions for vbcc).)

hi,

just stumbled upon this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UIP_(micro_IP)

(copy URL manually, aros-exec doesnt like brackets in URLs)

what do you think?
would this be worth porting to AROS?
would this be an improvement over current ArosTCP?

Thanks (seriously!)

To answer your question, and/or just to make my point clear:

I don't know what library I'm asking about. Bsdsocket? Any other? You tell me...

Which core libraries? "Can" be opened, or "are" opened? Why "should", not "have to", or "dont"? ...

See my point? We're talking about computers here. There's no "may" or "should", computers don't judge. (I know I'm simplifying here.)

You may have seen some other of my posts about "GetRastPort(screen)" function, and how/when to use it. Then someone tells me I can also use Screen->RastPort. Well, then why don't we drop the whole API and use structures and pointers directly? No, I "can't" use Screen->RastPort, that's simply wrong. I "have to" use GetRastPort(), that's the intended way of using the API. (And there's good reasons for sticking to a defined API.)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not ranting here - all I'm trying to say is:
a) AROS is a mess
b) Any API has to be clearly structured, and used accordingly, there should be no room for interpretation, e.g. all libraries should be handled equally, please, dear developers!

Of course I'm aware of the fact that you and everyone else is in the same situation as I am: AROS is a moving, wobbling target.
I'm not criticizing your guessing! I just think AROS shouldn't be a guessing game.

Once again, to make that perfectly clear:
- I probably know less about AROS than everyone else around here!
- No ranting here, just trying to help improve the situation!
- I'm a big fan of AROS and Amiga!
- Thanks for your (and everyone's) reply (replies)! (you DID help me! again!)
- Thanks everyone for the amazing work you're doing on AROS!

"...existing developers will need to create accounts through the web interface at https://trac.aros.org"


how do i do that?
i see "login", and fields for user and password, "preferences", "help", ... but nothing that says "create account" or "register".

Quote:
(if you created an account on the previous trac deployment, that account may still be there, so you'll have an account already in that case).


no, i didn't. i applied via e-mail.

Quote:
If this does still apply, I don't know.


I doubt it.

SVN access -> account expired?

hi!

cannot log in to svn -
I successfully applied for an account, but that was years ago, now I cannot log in to https-server and cannot log in via svn (commandline).

tried:
https://trac.aros.org/trac/login (webbrowser)
https://svn.aros.org/svn/aros/ (webbrowser)
svn checkout https://svn.aros.org/svn/aros/trunk/AROS (cli)

do svn accounts expire?

if not, I may have forgotten my username/password - how do i recover it?


(i know that i could use guest/guest, but I want to use my account (if it still exists), which should allow me to contribute (write access))

network programming: send() and MSG_NOSIGNAL

i have this line of code that compiles under Linux:

bytes = send(net->socket, mem, size, 0 | MSG_NOSIGNAL);


but won't compile under AROS, because MSG_NOSIGNAL is unknown.

(using AROS nightly build 2017-05-01 i386 ABIv0)


any ideas?

hi,

having problems with gethostbyname() here... I'm probably doing something wrong.

[update, a bit later:]


ok, now gethostbyname() works, after adding struct SocketBase and calls to OpenLibrary() and CloseLibrary() (like serk does in his GHN_test.c), and #include <exec.h> (avoids some warning).


which confuses me, because...

a) i see some example code that does OpenLibrary(), and other that doesn't
(e.g. here, without OpenLibrary(): https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Aros/Dev ... rld.22_example_sourcecode )

b) i do not #include <proto/bsdsocket.h> (like serk does in his GHN_test.c)

c) i remember previously getting some compiler error like "error: redefinition of SocketBase, previous definition was in ...bsdsocket..." (sorry, cannot remeber precisely, and cannot reproduce right now) _WITHOUT_ any #include <...bsdsocket...> (but with #include <sys/socket.h>, <netinet/in/h>, <netdb.h>, <arpa/inet.h>)

that leads me to the conclusion that there IS some automatism going on regarding bsdsocket(.library? .h?) stuff, but I still have to OpenLibrary(), define SocketBase, ...?

what's actually happening?
can someone clarify?

hm, found this while playing with amitcp on amigaOS:
http://aminet.net/package/comm/tcp/napsaterm3.8b

"...It is a VT100 terminal emulator..."

sources seem to be included.


Update:
oh, this is getting interesting:
