One important thing to be sure of, before we
start with the different
libraries... what c-library should we use?
At the moment... clib2 is the c-library with the
most functions, but as
it is a static library and OpenOffice.org
is huge, would this not be a
newlib does have less functions at the moment,
but it is shared, and is
more optimized... so it would need more work, but will give us a more
Amiga-like and a faster application.
If we would chose newlib, should we if it was up
to me make the missing
functions under the BSD license, and offer the OS4 team the code for
inclussion in newlib (up to them ofcourse).
So if I understand correctly clib2 = easier but larger and slower
newlib = faster more compact but possibly take a bit longer?
yes, something like that
if so, I vote newlib, but then I wont be doing the
extra coding, more
importantly can you tell me what effect the decision will have in the
short term, ie if we wre to choose clib2 now would it be very difficult to
change over later.
as long as we don't use nonstandard functions of clib2 should it not be
that hard to replace it lateron... but we need to remember that if we are
going to change the c-library later on, do we need to do that for all
libraries and plugins... so please no non standard functions.
