The new string stuff is building and running (passes all the pre-checkin tests) on Win32, Mac, and Linux. I don't see any errors on the Solaris build, but I'll have to wait for confirmation. I'm tempted to turn it on right this instant, but I'm gonna wait anyway. You can never be sure :-)

Chris Waterson has been a huge help getting this stuff working with every compiler. No question: gcc- sucks ass. Thank heavens for autoconf. The challenge comes in writing an autoconf test that tests for exactly the bad behavior a given compiler has.

Is this too wierd?

My first diary entry. Just discovered this site while cruising around people's home pages; in this case blizzard's. Committing to a diary sounds challenging.

My primary focus right now is getting rid of the old string cruft in Mozilla, moving to the new factored scheme first described in this bug, and getting some documentation out on how to exploit the new readable and writable interfaces, and the various implementations of them. Gotta get some doc out right away. "Worse is better." as Brendan Eich would say. How come he doesn't have an account here?

I wonder if there's any reasonable way for me to PGP sign these diary entries? Posting without signing feels very weird to me.
