This is mainly aimed at hnl_dk as he was looking at creating an X11
wrapper, but a member of the Amizilla team has contacted us regarding
working on a GTK library/port, and is asking if we would like to work on a
joint project. It may be worth hnl_dk working with them on the X11 wrapper
(ie if the X11 spoke to AOS/MUI/Reaction/whatever and then GTK spoke to the

After installing gcc-3.4.0 and configuring it to use clib2
(with a severely kludged specs file), I have now tried to
compile every source file in the tcsh source distribution
as a quick way to determine the feasibility of porting it.
I am happy to write that with a few exception it seems the
tcsh source is _relatively_ portable. The main areas which seem
to need a bit of work are the following:
* missing signals
* resource limits
* multi-user support
Of these, only the missing signals and fork()/vfork() appears to
pose any significant problem and as a positive side-effect, we might
contribute further to the development of clib2 (just an idea).
The ixemul-compiled tcsh binary is extremely unstable on my machine
and crashes randomly, usually in less than 15 seconds. It does, however,
appear to handle csh scripts - which the older csh implementation did
not (it only handled a subset).
Unfortunately, this still does not indicate if it would be easier to
write our own intepreter or not.

I have BIG trouble with my library for libusb and I cant find any error in the source code :(
So if there is a library guru in here thats want to help me track down my error(s)..
I can compile the barebone library with no problem but I cant open the library without the
system freezing, and the openlib program never returns.
I looks like it hangs in the library init function.
I have striped all the function to track down the nasty error

I think it's time we raised the profile of this project.
Banner advertising is currently low on Amigaworld.net so I am willing to give the Amiga Openoffice.org project a free Banner slot on the site while advertising is low, so be quick and take this opportunity for free advertising to raise Amiga Openoffice.org's profile.
So, did we decide on a slogan and banner?
