some bad data leftover in win32.mak. Per request from Hiroshi Saito.
…r everything except libpq. We need to keep libpq to build static libraries and to use PQtrace with clients using older versions of MSVC.
reason is that it's required (more or less) in order to build the latest DBD::Pg code and I was testing that out under MSVC. Andrew Dunstan
referring to "multibyte" where it really means character encoding.
from the core repository ... I haven't *moved* the libpq++ files out of the tree, mainly as we want to keep them in place for past branches ... Peter, I think I've covered all the files I need, and re-ran autoconf to make sure the configure file is in place properly ...
Here is a patch to bring both libpq and psql to a state where it compiles on win32 (native) again. A lot of things have changed, and I have not been able to keep up with them all, so it has been broken for quite a while. After this patch, at least it compiles. It also talks "basic talk" to the server, but I have not yet tested all things. Sending queries, and using e.g. \d or \dt works fine. The rest will have to be tested further. It also bumps the version on libpq.dll to 7.0. Everything should be enclosed in #ifdef WIN32, unless I have missed something. Except for one or maybe two places where I have moved a #include that should not be used on win32 from the "global area" into a "#ifndef WIN32 area". //Magnus
regression test on a FreeBSD box with both non-MULTIBYTE and MULTIBYTE-enabled, and confirmed that the results are same. However I do not tested on PCs(I don't have access to win). Please let me know if the patches break anything on PCs. Also please note that the patch for varchar.c is a fix for a nasty bug of char(n) types that I introduced and I believe at least this should be applied. Tatsuo Ishii
Through some minor changes, I have been able to compile the libpq client libraries on the Win32 platform. Since the libpq communications part has been rewritten, this has become much easier. Enclosed is a patch that will allow at least Microsoft Visual C++ to compile libpq into both a static and a dynamic library. I will take a look at porting the psql frontend as well, but I figured it was a good idea to send in these patches first - so no major changes are done to the files before it gets applied (if it does).
