Thanks. (Are there problems with ABI=64, or you just trying to limit
the blinding speed of sparc?)
Some cxx tests (t-binary t-ops t-prec t-ternary t-unary) still
fail to compile, but I believe it is because of bugs in the
compiler (whereas what I patched looks like bugs in the code).
Is it determinable whether the compilation failures are bugs in the
compiler or bugs in the code, in this advanced language?
When I have tried to compile smoe C++ code with GCC, each syntax error
gives about 300 MB worth of error messages. Of course, such error
messages can take some time to decipher. :-)
A bit more details:
there are a number of missing std:: for c++ use. Since gmp-impl.h
is not installed, it can just use the easy "using namespace
std;". For gmp.h, I did something cleaner (It is better for
standard conformance, but I am not sure it may not hurt some
broken c++ compiler).
The typedef in gmpxx.h is because a C linkage function and a C++
linkage function need not look the same I think.
I will check again after the next patch to sun's c++ compiler
(the one released today was a disappointment).
When is the next patch going to be available?
