VS.2005 project files (2.17 KB, application/zip)

Description Sergey Scobich 2006-01-27 12:45:59 UTC

I found VS.2005 environment a very nice one and it seems to better support C99.
Also it has a lot of good features, like profiling, boundary and security
checks in the code. This could be usefull when you debug applications.
In order to contribute some code to gstreamer I need to build it and be able to
debug it right from VS.2005.

For this I need to compile all the dependancies because there are crashes
appeared when you try to mix msvcrt.dll and msvcr80.dll runtimes.
For libxml2 I didn't find any VS.2005 project files and faced some problems
compiling it from command line.

So I created the required project files for VS.2005 and attached them to bug. 

Please include them to CVS, this will save a lot of time for the people like me
that want to debug other applications that depends on libxml2 right from VS.2005

Please note that I understand that you cannot distribute the build linked with
msvcr80.dll because it is not a part of OS and this breaks GPL. I just asking
to add VS project files.

I've filed the same bug for glib before(#328691) and it seems to be accepted. It
will be nice to see the same for libxml2.

Created attachment 58203 [details]
VS.2005 project files

the vs8 directory attached need to be added to 
win32 directory. If you think that it is not the right place please tell
me I will move them to another location and modify project files acordingly.
Comment 2 Daniel Veillard 2006-01-27 13:42:15 UTC
Suggestions for platform specific changes, especially for Windows
must be directed to the mailing-list where the people competent on the
Windows environment can answer. 
for informations about the mailing-list, please suscribe first. We do have a
Windows maintainer and he will ultimately make the decision. I don't know
why the environment to build in the win32 subdir is not adequate, this should
be explained in the post to the mailing-list.
I will close this bug report as I don't expect processing of this request to be
done though Bugzilla,
