thread. the solution is to stop pretending that coad worx on boxen where no one in living memory had ever tested it and signed.
: ( fwiw the posted prototype has selectable endianism, albeit via an 'ifdefism
' . thus far only tested with 'bigendian' kernel + userland tho. )
: it aint 'ifdefism
' if you dun have two incompatible items which purport to inhabit the same vtree.
: don't tell me your idea is "ifdefism
only acceptable if done by hand"

: the infestation is deep enuff that you quite obv could not make above example actually build reliably on any extant unix. the entire notion of 'portability' as pictured by unixtards (i.e. powered by #ifdefism
) precludes it.
: in that it prevents the combinatorial clusterfucks that ifdefism
: ada deliberately does not offer equiv of #ifdef, because ifdefism
is retarded. so you're left with this method, afaik.
: diana_coman: the way i understand 'v branching as civilized replacement for #ifdefism
', the branches unavoidably gotta get reground whenever the whole tree is considered stable (i.e. no further changes likely to trunk)
