Sorry Benoit I've been on the road for the last couple of weeks.  I will
look at the code and see if there is anything I can help with. I think I'm
still alive :-) but just can't keep up with the speed you are working!!

Subject: [Gambas-devel] Database component, RedHat and Mandrake problems

Hello everybody,

I have put a pre-version of gambas with a database component at the
following url:


This package is intended to test, not to use !

This database component is composed of the following:
- A main database component named gb.db
- A postgresql driver component named gb.db.postgresql

This component is sufficient, but limited, as it can query the database but
cannot query nor modify its structure.

I explained in the development mailing-list why querying and modifying the
database structure is not standard, and so is more difficult to program.
This functionality will be implemented in a far future...

Now, I'm looking for a nice guy that will write a mysql driver. Hullo C
hackers ! Nigel ? Jean-Marc ? Are you alive ? :-)

The postgresql driver functions are documented in the source, and I will
answer to any question of course. It is just a matter of writing the same
thing, but for mysql !

A very good help is looking into the QT mysql driver source :-)

If someone wants to write the mysql driver, tell me. I will add the mysql
libraries and headers auto-detection in the gambas configure script, and the
needed Makefile.am file.

Another point, now. I have compiled all C++ gambas files with the
options -fno-exceptions. Maybe this could solve the RedHat 8.0 problem.

Can a kind RedHat-8.0 user tell me if this pre-version compiles without the
"_UnwindGetIP" symbol missing error ?

Moreover, I added an option in the gambas IDE project. Now the gambas IDE
loads its component at startup before any memory allocation.

Can Mandrake users having segfault test if the IDE crashes with this version

Thanks in advance, and waiting for comment and help !
