Updating fbbindings

Postby LkpPo » Aug 07, 2018 17:06

Hello,

I tried to update fbbindings packages with a cygwin 64bits env. and hit a lot of broken things.

Maybe cygwin is not the right build env. for this task.

It seems also that fbfrog have been changed and the makefile rules are not in sync with fbfrog. Some rules are broken, others don't output the same bi files, others output empty bi files.

If someone has commit rights I can send a PR for broken links and minors things for starting.

(Initial post : https://github.com/freebasic/fbc/pull/9 ... -410819645)

Hi,

the last time I worked on fbfrog+fbbindings, it was on Linux only, so maybe it is broken for Windows/Cygwin... but I'm sure that can be fixed. So if you've got useful changes, send a pull request, I can review + merge it.

Also I'm not surprised if the download links used in the scripts are dead and need updating, but other than that everything should work. Even the fbfrog version is hard-coded, to make it reproducible, and to avoid breaking due to changes in fbfrog. For example, here's what I just tried:

Code: Select all

cd fbbindings
git checkout raw
make clean
rm -rf inc/IUP
make iup
git gui

And that seems to give almost the same .bi files in inc/IUP/ as before (different copyright years, unfortunately).

For updating IUP specifically, the first step would be to update the IUP_VERSION in the makefile, and then give it a go and check the generated .bi files. The fbfrog invocation command and iup.fbfrog may need adjustment too. Since currently the IUP binding is split up into many .bi files (almost one per .h file), it may be necessary to add/remove -emit commands from the fbfrog invocation command, to adjust to the new IUP version.

Of course that trouble could be avoided by just generating a single iup.bi file only.

If you have any ideas for improvements to the process, they are most definitely welcome, because so far the scripts for invoking fbfrog with all the needed options have turned out to be somewhat of a hack.

Hi dkl,

Some errors encountered :

Just trying to compile all packages I had to turn off a lot of targets. I took a few note about errors happening for me.

Code: Select all

# inc/allegro.bi is missing
#ALL += allegro
#ALL += allegro4
#ALL += allegro5

# winapi-titles-generated.fbfrog(1): could not open file: 'mingw-w64-disclaimer-pd.tmp'
#ALL += chipmunk

# compilation segfault
#ALL += curl

# http://www.fastcgi.com (broken link)
#ALL += fastcgi

# Arguments too long
#ALL += gsl

# configure.ac:114: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL
#ALL += jit

# Unsed and source code unavailable
#ALL += spidermonkey

#ALL += x11
#ALL += xcb


fake-configure.bas and getcomment.bas compilation are missing.

Some end of line are not Unix only and that breaks compilation.

Most of bi are empty like this :

Clearly the behavior of fbfrog is not the same with cygwin.

It also looks like fbforg is trying to read all fbfrog files before generation and fails. I had to delete files like winapi-titles-generated.fbfrog at certain stages.

Files like quicklz.fbfrog which have a declareversions option fail also at compilation.

Code: Select all

-declareversions QLZ_COMPRESSION_LEVEL 1 2 3
-selectversion
-case 1 -define QLZ_COMPRESSION_LEVEL 1
-case 2 -define QLZ_COMPRESSION_LEVEL 2
-case 3 -define QLZ_COMPRESSION_LEVEL 3
-endselect



I could install a Debian or an OpenBSD system as a last resort (it's been a while since I have to do it).

I tried to update to IUP 3.25 and have to rewrite all rules, one by bi file, otherwith there are all empty, but for N .h files to one 1 bi file fbfrog always fail. I don't know if I misuse it or if it's broken on cygwin.

Code: Select all

IUP_VERSION := 3.25
IUP_TITLE := iup-$(IUP_VERSION)
iup: tools
   ./get.sh $(IUP_TITLE) $(IUP_TITLE)_Sources.tar.gz "http://sourceforge.net/projects/iup/files/$(IUP_VERSION)/Docs%20and%20Sources/$(IUP_TITLE)_Sources.tar.gz/download" createdir

Have you considered making one makefile in a subfolder per package? It could save us from strange interactions.

I prepare a PR with some corrections.

Ok, interesting. Crashes are strange, that needs to be debugged.

Some parts are understandable, such as ./configure build system invocation being different on the different target. It's really unfortunate that some packages generate some headers at build-time... this is not handled nicely at all currently in fbbindings.

The empty .bi files might be caused by the -emit options using / path separators to match, it might have to be \ to match for Windows. I think fbfrog can handle that somehow by replacing the path separators..

Yea, that would be much better.

I can make a log if you need it.

Maybe I should install gcc packages for cross compilation so that it works better.

There are a note about that in fbfrog. You intended to make a complete C / C ++ preprocessor I think.

In cygwin path is like that for example : /cygdrive/c/devel/fbbindings-githb-lkppo

Ok. I will think about it.
