I haven't patched the entire front end, only the PQconnectdb function
works at the moment.
Most of the changes involve replacing the standard Unix headers with
their Mac counter parts. Some functions have to be written from
scratch or ported from Unix, like strdup for example.
The biggest source of pain is that Mac just doesn't have all the
libraries that Unix does. Sigh.
It is going to be a BIG job, which is why I was hoping someone else
had done it already.
Oh well, I guess I'll plod along. I'll build it as a CodeWarrior
project for Mac with a target of "library" if that's alright?
Any words of wisdom on best ways to do this?
