• BULLSEYE.SRC compiling

    From Nidas@VERT to All on Thu Mar 1 03:38:00 2001
    Hi,

    When compiling BULLSEYE.SRC Baja gives error:

    SYNTAX ERROR (expecting variable name)
    bullseye.src 24: _errno

    Do i need to add "!include errno.inc" - did not help
    or add "str _errno" - did help.

    i did it right?

    Can you extract the original .src file and compare the two (your edited
    one with the virgin file?

    What's the difference?

    Post the altered lines.

    I only changed a color of prompt line from blue to cyan. :-)
    I downloaded BSEYE100.ZIP from VERT, the file included is identical, it wouldn't compile (well without any extra options as i always do..)
    The line with problem is #21:

    printf "\r\n!ERROR %ld opening %s\r\n" _errno str

    so i asked is it correct to add line "str _errno" to solve the problem

    No, you need to include sbbsdefs.inc

    or add "str _errno" - did help.

    No.

    You must have removed the !include sbbsdefs.inc line because it's in original.

    No, you need to include sbbsdefs.inc

    Yes, it's included, as i said i compile unmodified source.

    This is real strange.. I found another source that has _errno in it (QNET.src) and that doesn't compile too (at least for me)

    You must have removed the !include sbbsdefs.inc line because it's in origina

    Now i checked this sbbsdefs.inc file..

    from my old BBS backup - file sbbsdefs.inc has line !global _ERRNO
    this file dated 1996-07-04.

    file i have in \EXEC dir. doesn't have above mentioned line.
    this file dated 2000-10-24

    any comments?

    set str "%zBULLSEYE.CFG"
    fopen file O_RDONLY str
    if_false
    printf "\r\n!ERROR %ld opening %s\r\n" _errno str
    return
    end_if

    Mine runs and it is compiled without the additional include.

    Possible the re error is being generated above but reported on this
    line.

    If you have access to the sbbs3.0c maybe you can extract what you need
    from there.



    so i asked is it correct to add line "str _errno" to solve the problem

    Is your sbbsdefs.inc missing the !include errno.inc line? You are compiling this files in your EXEC directory, right?

    _errno is defined in errno.inc, but sbbsdefs.inc INCLUDES errno.inc, so you should not have to include errno.inc if you're already including sbbsdefs.inc. Make sense?

    21:17 C:\sbbs\exec grep errno *.inc
    File errno.inc:
    # errno.inc
    # Defines the system error variable _errno and the error
    File sbbsdefs.inc:
    !include errno.inc

    # errno.inc
    # Defines the system error variable _errno and the error
    File sbbsdefs.inc:
    !include errno.inc

    OK Rob, i finally figured it out: i had sbbsdefs.inc from ver3.00c, which !includes errno.inc, but errno.inc i had, was from ver. 3.00b, which did
    not have line !global _ERRNO. How it happened that i had such setup-
    i don't know. Was installing ver3.00C UPGRADE on top of 3.00b.

    To figure this out i had to fresh install both ver.3.00b and 3.00c
    As i'm writing about this i want to ask if it's necessary to first
    Uninstall the intalled version. Or it's no problem to install 2nd, 3rd
    copy of Synchronet to other base directory, and then after uninstall
    everything should be OK with original BBS installation.
    In other words -does Synchronet use Windows registry for settings, or
    every setting is in installed base dir, configuration files, etc..
    I personally would like it be second variant.

    Well thanks for the replies. Good to have a software, where author can
    respond usually within 24hours. And asking questions is one of the
    ways of quick learning. Don't you agree?

    p.s. my BBS name change occured after original 'Byte's Hell' sysop
    visited (now he's a CoSysop). I was thinking of changing it anyway.
    Now should be more understandable for foreign users ;)

    Perhaps the upgrade is missing errno.inc <shrug>

    No, it's not necessary.
