That person needs to learn from history. We have actually *already been through* the "it does not compile" moment in the daemontools world. It was the well-known errno problem; "plain C" that was not, in fact, standard-conformant C. It was patched fairly rapidly, years ago. Moreover there are plenty of people who have, severally and independently, brought the Bernstein libraries up to date with respect to C1999 and C2011, including Felix von Leitner, Laurent Bercot, and ... well ... me. * http://jdebp.eu./Softwares/djbwares/ Francisco Gómez García: > Good to know there's s6 as well [...] Even freedt is still available. * http://jdebp.eu./FGA/daemontools-family.html
