Unless more people want MS VC++ support, I am relunctant to merge VC++ specific patches as I cannot test them. Why do you use _open() instead of open() ? Would the O_BINARY flag improve things ?

Now that there is an example to output another format than ELF, maybe someone will add PECOFF support !


PS: Try to send 'diff -u' patches, they are easier to read...

Good news!  The C67 port seems to compile, run, and generate correct C67

Below is a diff of the directory I was testing in.

The changes to tcccoff.c I belive are all straighforward bugs and should be

The rest are make/header/compiler issues which you may have a better way to
address.  There are a couple of linux headers that don't seem to be required
by tcc but give problems for MinGW (or MS VC++).  Similarly there are
references to "long long".  Also a few minor compiler issues.

I couldn't find a good way to debug the MinGW generated exe.  Is there one?
The only thing I could find is a command line gdb.  So I resorted back to MS
VC++ to compile and debug.  It seemed too easy.  I just made an empty
project, inserted tcc.c and it compiled an ran!

Here is the process I went through on my Windows Machine (possibly useful to
someone as ignorant of Linux as me):

1 - Install Cygwin (including development tools)
2 - Install MinGW
3 - from Cygwin prompt checkout tcc with:
        cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/tinycc co tinycc
4 - I resorted to editing the configure script to force mingw32="yes"
5 - from Cygwin prompt: configure
6 - from windows cmd prompt: cd to where CVS put the files (cd
6 - from windows cmd prompt: put Mingw\bin in your path=$path$;c:\mingw\bin
7 - from windows cmd prompt: mingw32-make.exe C67-tcc.exe
8 - from windows cmd prompt: C67-tcc.exe -g -nostdlib test.c -o test.out

Let me know your thoughts.
