[13:01:25] <Dominus> froze the Native Android port thread... it acted as a spam honeypot :(
[19:44:22] <sh4rm4> any news on the ucparse.h patch ? (without $(SHELL), of course)
[19:45:07] <Dominus> Paulo on the forum had some problems but he didn't look more into it. It sounded like a problem on his side
[19:45:23] <sh4rm4> well, he added wrong stuff like \
[19:45:32] <sh4rm4> that breaks everything of course
[19:45:34] <Dominus> ah, so you read
[19:46:16] <Dominus> and I suspect he did other strange stuff or got something else broken in his prefix
[19:46:23] <sh4rm4> *nod*
[19:46:32] <Dominus> wjp, should we give the ucparse thing a go?
[19:47:23] <Dominus> either way, even if we break it for some now, we would at least get feedback on this, and it's broken for all newer systems anyway :)
[19:47:35] <sh4rm4> eh :P
[19:49:04] <wjp> hrm, I still don't like it, but can't say I can immediately think of a better way (other than writing extra tests in configure)
[19:50:02] <Dominus> I have no opinion on what's considered a bigger hack :(
[19:50:18] <sh4rm4> well, it's not really a hack
[19:50:21] <wjp> it is
[19:50:26] <wjp> I'm also unsure if the test -e is the best way to do error checking
[19:50:32] <wjp> might be better to let it immediately fail
[19:50:37] <sh4rm4> it has a proper dependency chain, and checks for existence
[19:50:44] <wjp> hardly proper :-)
[19:50:56] <Dominus> and it seems a couple of projects are struggling with this and don't especially like the way they are forced to handle it
[19:51:07] <sh4rm4> well if ucparse.cc exists, ucparse.h/ucparse.hh must exist as well
[19:51:14] <wjp> yes, well, that's what you say
[19:51:43] <sh4rm4> unless lex/yacc write the header later, than we have a tiny window for a race condition
[19:53:07] <wjp> that seems very implausible
[19:53:50] * wjp sighs
[19:54:08] <wjp> if we just do nothing for another year we can probably just switch to .hh ;-)
[19:54:24] <Dominus> he he he
[19:54:58] <Dominus> let's add this hack and set us a reminder in a calendar to remove it in a year :)
[19:55:27] <Dominus> maybe there is even a free reminder service that will send a reminder mail to us :)
[19:56:11] <wjp> hrm, should probably tweak 'make dist' as well
