Hello Dagobert,

I compiled zutils 0.8 for Solaris and some patches are needed which you may

Thanks for reporting this. I'll comment on each patch separately.

On Solaris there is no stdint.h, but inttypes.h.

But I neither need nor want all the crap of inttypes.h included in zutils. I think it is time for Solaris to start implementing stdint.h.

Additionally, signal.h is needed in some files.

Those files already #include <csignal>. Why is signal.h also needed?

On Solaris only /usr/ucb/echo understands -n, /usr/bin/echo does not
(the /opt/csw part can be ignored for a general patch).

I have already removed "echo -n" from all my projects. Surely this patch is no more needed.

The renaming of the utilities to an uppercase "Z" because of the gzip
collision is disturbing and I would appreciate a solution between you and
the gzip maintainer.

Rewriting zutils in C++ is the first step towards such a solution. As soon as I am confident that the new zutils work reasonably well, I'll write again to the gzip list. Stay tuned. :-)

The call can be applied to two function signatures and should be made unique:
"zcat.cc", line 48: Error: Overloading ambiguity between "std::string::insert(char*, unsigned, 
char)" and "std::string::insert(unsigned, unsigned, char)".

Please, can you see if using the suffix 'U' like in the following line works?
    else str.insert( 0U, 1, '1' );

Best regards,
