Here you go:
- 0001 fixes the global declarations of TIMEZONE_GLOBAL and
TZNAME_GLOBAL to be WIN32-compliant. I got bitten by that in the ECPG
- 0002, support of VS2015 in the scripts of src/tools/msvc
- 0003, this is necessary in order to run the regression tests,
details are here:
- 0004 is the fix for locales. This is actually Petr's work upthread,
I have updated comments in the code though and did a bit more
polishing. This still looks like the cleanest solution we have. Other
solutions are mentioned upthread: redeclaration of struct _locale_t in
backend code is one.
