Summary: Porting Issue -- Visual Studio compilers have different
Project: Qpid Proton
Issue Type: Improvement
Environment: Windows using Visual Studio 10
Reporter: Mary hinton
Visual Studio compilers have different header files.
I looked through the files that qpid cpp uses for including Visual Studio
It looks like most of the diffences in header files are set up in Boost.
Boost uses the macro BOOST_WINDOWS.
Maybe we could use PROTON_WINDOWS for including the windows header files.
If you don't want a new macro, we can use one of the Visual Studio specific
for the header files.
It's not really a CPLUSPLUS vs. C issue, since many of the header files are
specific to Windows.
(for example winsock2.h which is used by C++ and C in Visual Studio).
Also, some of the current header files are not used on Windows, but may be used
by CYGWIN or MinGW.
If this sounds okay, I'll set up a patch for including the necessary windows
