Sorry for rising the matter. I suppose that Charles is right.

Porting old code to a modern compiler or OS is not for the faint of heart.

Yes. I thought my old code was robust enough (it cam from QNX and I ported it under DOS/Window using Borland years ago and it ran without problem for decades).

If your C is rusty, as it shows given your questions, you are going down a rough roadÂ… If you cannot compile with gcc, first fix that. You probably defined some string functions that conflict with those of the glibc. Try using some of the gcc flags that prevent builtins or enforce strict standard conformance.

So, it seems I have to rewrite it and test it step by step. If I read you correctly (I am not a developper, just a user developping my own operational tools as a powefull enough function library) my best bet is to rewrite for it. I suppose I will enjoy adding a few things.

From what you say, I should go for gcc compatibility under windows to be sure it compiles with TCC and probably everywhere.

You can also hide the glibc functions by defining macros before the #include lines and undefine them afterwards.

Yeap. But I think I will try to offer me a refurbished library as a Xmas C gift :-)

btw, would you know a clean and clear uptodate C documentation including internetworking tools?

Thx to every one
