How to compile ancient C source?
« on: August 03, 2010, 11:18:05 AM »
Not TC related issue, but current TC development environment is involved.

Trying to compile a C source dated back to 2003 getting compiler errors like 'ISO C++ forbids declaration of 'xxx' with no type', etc. Is it possible to turn off such strict checking? If not necessary wouldn't spend time on fixing the source.

Try to build with gcc 3.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
