Are you the tcc maintainer?
Dunno. Ask Fabrice.
I maintain my own mercurial repository, which I converted from the CVS
repository back on October 7th (at which point CVS hadn't been touched
February). I've applied a couple dozen patches to it since then, and have
least a dozen more todo items I should make time for.
However, on October 16th and 18th, Fabrice showed up after a long absence
committed some stuff to the old CVS repository (in both cases, variants of
patches I think I'd already committed to my repository, the -E thing and
stuff from Dave Dodge's patch list), which took most of the wind out of my
This put my mercurial repository in an awkward position, as a clearly
unofficial branch. If Fabrice showed any desire to take an interest in
project again, I wasn't going to stand in his way, so I stopped actively
working on my version at that point. Went on to focus on other things
(toybox and firmware linux, mostly).
However, it's now been about 4 months since Fabrice's last commit, and he
hasn't even tried to catch up with my tree. I'm still not puting much
into it, and I really haven't properly come up to speed on most of the tcc
internals, but I've been bookmarking various tcc patches as I find them
I'm slowly working my way through the backlog.
So all I can say right now is I maintain _my_ version. I merge patches
try to respond to bug reports.
I'm not planning a release (unless somebody really wants one), I have
other demands on my time, I really don't understand the internals of the
program half as well as I'd like, and I haven't currently got the three
months to dedicate to coming up to speed to my satisfaction.
I doubt this answers your question. I think I'm maintaining a fork.
If so, I stumbled on some problems too.
Sure, I'm all ears.
tcc had trouble with the struct tags being
used at nested scope levels.
Do you have a code snippet that can reproduce the problem?
Also, I have a program that compiles and runs
fine on multiple architectures but with tcc
is simply hangs.
Again, got something I can reproduce? (If I can reproduce it, I'll at
_try_ to fix it, if somebody reminds me often enough. :)
A couple weeks back somebody sent me a program that segfaults tcc during
compile. Looking into that is on my short-term todo list (at
