So far, I have tried four projects from Windows to Linux/Wine. All compiled using VC6 on Wine and ran ok the first time. The two largest contained 78 and 105 cpp files with approximate source file sizes 2GB and 5GB.
GUI: all standard and extended controls via dialog calls/macros
and CreateWindow, various window positioning/resizing functions,
GDI: most except paths
CHARS: most functions defined by <tchar.h>
FILES: fopen,fread, fwrite, ftell, fseek, fclose, _findfirst,
_findnext, _mkdir, remove, _tunlink
MEMORY new,delete and most memory and <string.h> functions.
Did not use MFC or ATL frameworks, just plain, Windows API functions
and as few of these as I could manage.
Did not use Windows file and directory functions.
Did not use c++ exception handling
Did not use Windows memory allocation function or older mallocs.
could not get the debugging to work.
1. on entry to the Windows main program:
int PASCAL WinMain( ...)
int a = 1; // for testing debug
int b = a + 1 ; // testing debug
hmodule = fhInstance ; <<< put breakpoint here
Values of variables a and b were reported as unknown expressions.
2. a little bit further into WinMain at call to CreateWindow for
hwndmain = CreateWindow( "GenericAppClass", ....
The program entered CreateWindow, but never returned.
Does debugging work, or have I entered unchartered waters?
