Well, it is a pity some interesting comments get deleted or ignored in some other places. I thought it would be a good idea to have a place we could discuss the suggestions and ideas that seem tu encumber in other places.

Thus, you may see this topic as a place you can post things you think would be considered off-topic in other TIGCC-related topics happy

FYI, Kevin will never take into account anything coming from here, because everything is biased here (??, all the more himself is extremely biased). He doesn't even take into account (and censors) things (facts) from his own board's users (including the other active admin)...

Indeed, I don't really see the point in this topic since, by definition, any suggestion for tigcc that would be censored on ezboard would never be implemented (or perhaps in a fork of course).
But if it is just for empty discussions, do as you wish, but please stay calm.

Well, I guess if people come up with some interesting suggestion that would justify a fork, it is not completely impossible to do that.
There is quite a number of people that are unsatisfied with the recent changes in tigcc and would like to see the new features while keeping the ones that get removed from one version to another (I was told that kernel support, in particular, was better in some older versions).

Err, is that true ?

I don't know but old kerenl support was bugged too maybe more than now.
But one thing is sure : Kevin refuse to allow most of the PreOS features

This is nonsense.

I was only reporting what I was told. Though as you are the current maintainer of tigcc I would have expected a more detailed explanation from you. wink

I can't give a more detailed rebuttal to such a vague accusation.

This is no blame, this is a matter of curiosity. And about the what-you-could-answer part, well you could list the most important enhancements made, most visible features added and the most annoying bugs that got corrected, for instance.

The linker has been completely changed so It may cause problems but I belive the linker is better now(I don't think there is reported bug for kernel support, kevin may confirm). The TIGCC 0.94 was bugged too. If i remember DarkAngel had problem on Tatol Desctruction about code modifing itself(it may not) because of TIGCC 0.94 linking bug.
