Re: gcc for building Perl on WinXP

2011-11-02 Thread Chris Marshall
It would really simplify things for win32 PDL if an easy, 1-click addition for gfortran were available. We're spending a lot of development time working around the lack of a fortran compiler on win32 perls. Since gcc includes one, it is more of a packaging and distribution issue than one of

We've tested the PDL pthread support with POSIX Threads (pthreads) for Win32 at http://sourceware.org/pthreads-win32/ . It is nice because it allows PDL computations to make use of multicore processors for calculations. Always nice to see those factors of 2X, 4X, 6X, or more in speedup

Hi kmx, Thanks for the link, I hadn't realized that the official release of 5.14 SPP was out. I'll be sure to give it a go. BTW, it would be useful if the release notes on the web site also included the output from 'perl -V' or is there already somewhere to get that (without having to install

Hi kmx- Thanks for the perl -V info. That appears to be from the 32bit SP. Could you send the 64bit perl -V as well? How difficult would it be for me to build a 32bit SP with use64bit stuff enabled? I'm working on true 64bit index/data size support for PDL and a 32bit SP would be a good

Portable config information

2013-05-04 Thread Chris Marshall
I would like to make some module configuration files work with strawberry perl portable. Currently, the paths saved in config files are absolute which means if SPP is moved to another location, things break. I see that Portable provides something like this. Is there a standard way to do the

I can't find pthread_setname_np in any of the pthread*.h files in my Strawberry Perl Portable v52211 which suggests that it is not supported by the included pthread support. It is possible that there might be an updated mingw with that function included. Another possibility is you could port

It appears that this routine was added to mingw-w64 git last year. I don't know if it is in an official release yet... https://sourceforge.net/p/mingw-w64/mingw-w64/ci/0d95c795b44b76e1b60dfc119fd93cfd0cb35816/ On 6/21/2016 06:51, Chris Marshall wrote: I can't find pthread_setname_np in any

powershell compatible SPP

Following a conversation with Chas Owens at YAPC::NA 2017 in Alexandria, we're working on an implemention of SPP using Windows PowerShell rather than command.com and .bat files. Is there anyone else interested in helping with the project? --Chris
