Updated SDK

Post by dstastny »

Hi I know there was a hope to get updated SDK out last fall 2017 but understood there was some stuff needed to get done to make that happen. Is there anything the public could offer to help or volunteer to see it happen?

Regards
Doug

Yes, what's missing and causing the hold-up? How can we help?

A newer GCC would be a great help, one with C++11 support.

I'm not sure where else i could post this, but since this is a (rather new) SDK related thread i'll go with it.

I stumbled over a build error in residualvm where the compiling breaks due to a conflicting namespace, namely "Image" from, i think, intuition.

Having opened a bug item on the apps site, i got a message from one of the maintainers which i think would be best to relay:
Whoever is in charge of this part of the AmigaOS SDK needs to be notified it's not a good idea to name their things Image and such as it's bound to conflict with application code...
And here's the bug item.

@Raziel

If you define __USE_AMIGAOS_NAMESPACE__ all the AmigaOS structures and types should be in a separate "AmigaOS" namespace.

I think the proto/#?.h files from the last public SDK do not support this feature though and would have to be regenerated using a newer version idltool which is not publicly available.

Another option would be to separate out any AmigaOS code into some simple functions in a different source code file so that the AmigaOS and ResidualVM headers do not have to be included at the same time.
