Nice to hear that all the sparemint C++ libs are useless ... :-( Most time
you don't see if the libs are C++ libs or include C++ objects.

These libraries are too fat. I don't use these. Do you know that
there's libraries and dynamic libraries that are still developed
aside from the SpareMiNT project ? The aim is still to be concise,
easy and elegant.

Would it mind if it's changed into new libraries ?

I don't know if you ever realized that this a "lot" of work? And with
"lot" I really mean a lot. So can I assume that you are willing
to update and recompile all neccessary sparemint rpms? *This* will be
really helpful.

This is not a specifical ATARI problem. It's been a long time since
GCC 3.x was first published. You can't ignore it. Things have

You speak about "bugs" unprecisely, because you don't know.

Oh, maybe I dreamt only of this. Btw. I also found an optimizer bug in gcc
2.95.3 (but that's the only one I remember in 2.95.3).

GNU C 3.x has better optimizations, no doubts. But high levels are not
guaranteed. It always has been like that. For this specific point it is
better than it was.

Speaking like you speak will not improve the usage and progress
of ATARI m68k GNU C target.

And speaking like you also don't help. Nobody stop you to compile and test
the gcc 3.x and finally made rpm packages. I'm for sure the last person
who stop anyone todo something. Everyone is welcome to contribute to
sparemint, just upload the rpms through ftp and sent me a short notice.

I can't do it myself. But when I suggested to another guy to do it, you
reacted speaking of bugs, no better code etc ... On this point you badly
reacted. Let this guy do it, if he is willing to do it ... Right ?

You don't use GCC 3.x, you should !

To speak clearly, starting from version 3.0 I compiled the gcc from time
to time as native mint compiler and checked it out. And I was always so
impressed from it that I found I can still live with the 2.95.3.

That's your opinion. And you are heard by a lot of people. Your opinion
is quite important. Let other opinions be explained here. Your interest
may not be shared by everyone.
