Hi All,

Here are some questions:

1> Which complier is used to build the stable release of 'Microsoft Windows 32 bit Intel x386 compiled binaries' ? 'cygwin with gnu(g++)' or ms vc ?

After having built successfully with jam, how can I use 'jam install' command to install all the binaries to a specific folder?

2> In every source file, there is a similar line:

#pragma ident "$Id: AllanDeviation.hpp 1209 2008-04-22 03:45:34Z ocibu $"

what this stand for? In the above example, what's the sense of the string "1209"?

Thank you in advance!

1. I built the windows 32-bit binaries with MS VC. I believe the version I used was "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition". There are also cygwin binaries for the stable release on source forge.

I am not 100% sure about the syntax in Windows but I believe that you should be able to do:

jam -sPATH=C:\absolute\location\of\folder install

to install the binaries into a specific folder. Let me know if this works.

2. That prama line is an identifier string for when the file was last modified. In your example it means that ocibu last edited the file on 2008-04-22 at 03:45:3Z. The string "1209" is the subversion revision number that the last file was changed.

Hi Allen!

Thank you for fast answer back.

1> The console applications I build with ms vc2008 IDE can not run in windows xp with no ms vc installed, but the gpstk applications you build seems run well.

"jam -sPATH=C:\absolute\location\of\folder install" doesn't work, but I tried the following command, it indeed work!

jam -sPREFIX=C:\absolute\location\of\folder install

2> Is the prama line maintained by the svn automatically, or we have to update it manually when commiting changes.

Thanks again.

1. Ahh yes, that is my mistake it should be PREFIX not PATH.

2. The pragma line should be updated automatically by subversion. In some files the line is not formatted correctly so it does not update when it should. There are relatively few files that are like this though so you shouldn't need to worry about it.

Hi Allen!

I just upload a class 'ConfDataWriter', but the pragma line have not been added automatically as expected. Could you do me a favor to tell me how to solve the problem? Thank you in advance.

Please be sure that you set the property(ies) right for the committed file:

$svn propset svn:eol-style native *pp

$svn propset svn:keywords Id *pp

Hi Octavian!

Thank you very much for answering back. I tried the following commands before recommit the files, but it doesn't work.

svn propset svn:eol-style native ConfDataWriter.cpp 
svn propset svn:keywords Id ConfDataWriter.cpp 

svn propset svn:eol-style native ConfDataWriter.hpp 
svn propset svn:keywords Id ConfDataWriter.hpp

I solved it for you. Every svn-project file should have #pragma ident "$Id:$ as first line.

Thank you very much!
