Anyway, using GCC 2.3.3, compiling posixmodule.c produces:
(If building posixmodule fails, try enabling SYSVDEF)
gcc -c -DDO_TIMES \
posixmodule.c:87: conflicting types for `getcwd'
/usr/include/unistd.h:200: previous declaration of `getcwd'
posixmodule.c: In function `rename':
posixmodule.c:424: argument `from' doesn't match prototype
posixmodule.c:424: argument `to' doesn't match prototype
posixmodule.c: In function `posix_getpgrp':
posixmodule.c:697: too many arguments to function `getpgrp'
posixmodule.c: In function `posix_setpgrp':
posixmodule.c:711: too many arguments to function `setpgrp'
make: *** [posixmodule.o] Error 1
Now does this have anything to with the presence of 386-alloca.s in
the misc directory?
Has anyone built for a 386-BSD system, or have any suggestions to offer?
The reason for ignorance of C is because I prefer to work
at a higher level than that; Python's level in fact. It's
just what I've been looking for!
Thanks for any advice,
