Re: use pthread under winCE

Hi James,

Thanks a lot for your help.
I'm now able to compile the project for the emulator PocketPC2003 under eVC4.

But when I try to compile for ARMv4, I get this error : "pthread_cancel.c(59) : fatal error C1189: #error : Module contains CPU-specific code; modify and recompile."
Looking at the code just before, I want to add something like that :
#if defined(_ARM_)
#define PTW32_PROGCTR(Context) ((Context)."something here")
#endif but Iar, Fir or Eip don't work.
And I really don't know what I can put there.

Thank you again.

Hi Benoit,

I've attached my modifications to the ptw32_getprocessors.c file that fixes the GetProcessAffinityMask for WINCE. It just forces the processor count to one.

I looked in the pthread.h file and found that if you don't have _UWIN defined, pthreads own internal _errno will be used. Make sure _UWIN is *not* defined. See line 1143 in pthread.h.

It was many moons ago that I tweaked pthreads for WIN32 for WINCE and I've forgotten much of what needed to be done. If anyone wants a diff of my build against the current CVS version just let me know and I'll send it out. It might be a good idea to test it a bit and then merge it into the main CVS tree. I use the same source for both WIN32 and WINCE pthreads builds.
