AW: [cdt-dev] Target milestone 3.1.1 for bug #156187 - PathEntryframework should handle cygwin style paths on Windows

Hi Doug (and Mikhail),
 
from my perspective this is, first of all, a toolchain phenomenon: Include paths (and lib, for that matter) have a representation which cannot be understood by the PathEntry framework without translation. This toolchain speciality should not be reflected in the PathEntry framework, rather the MBS should serve the PathEntry framework with a standard representation of paths - i.e. one which is understood by the eclipse platform.
 
The "Standard Make with Cygwin" case must of course also be handled. Would be great if this goes sort of like automatically as Mikhail is suggesting, alos I am not sure how this would go ... But then I am no expert in this area.
 
So using path formats which are incompatible with the platform is a toolchain property. For the MBS, where the toolchain is explicitly represented, the fix is best done in the toochain specific part of the code.
 
If you still have thoughts about my approach then can you point me more specifically to the region in the code where an alternative fix could be done?
 
What do you think?
 
 
Norbert

Hi Doug,

 

I guess with the New Project Model enhancements in 4.0 when we have the notion of the tool/tool-chain in the Standard Make as well, the enhancement would get applied to the Standard Make projects as well.

Looking at the patch, I don’t see any changes to the core PathEntry framework, which is shared with all builders. The changes appear to be managed build only. Is that correct?

Hi folks,

 

I have now supplied a fully functional bugfix for https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=156187, a few things remain TBD (see https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=156187#c6) I'll strive to supply everything and I am confident that it can be done by Thursday next week.

 

I'd love to see this in 3.1.1 but I don't intend to blast the timeline so if there is a serious technical argument against this and the schedule is threatened I'll also retract this.

 

But otherwise I want it in :-)

 

This is just to draw attention so everybody gets a chance to look at my solution.

 

Thanks,

 

 

Norbert
