I am new to contributing to open-source project, but I have an interest in
using PostgreSQL for my business on a Linux file server. My client
software, however, will be running on Windows NT workstations developed
using Borland C++ Builder. I was quite disappointed that there was no way
to compile the libpq library using Borland tools, so I "scratched the itch"
and created / modified the attached files to compile the PostgreSQL 7.3
libpq static and dynamic libraries. I had done the same with version 7.2.3,
however, many more modifications were required to keep the compiler happy
than with 7.3.
Anyhow, I believe that some people out there may find it useful to be able
to compile the libary using the freely downloadable Borland command-line
compiler or C++ Builder. As I mentioned the new make and .def files are
attached. And the win32.h has just has a portion of it #ifdef'd out if the
Borland compiler is used.
Please educate me what the proper format/method should be to submit these
files -- or if there is any interest in
using them at all. In any case I am certainly looking forward to using
PostgreSQL with C++ Builder!
