- Subject: gcc2cl
I'm writing a utility to translate a gcc command-line to an MSVC
command-line and then spawn MSVC's cl.exe. It started life as a script
which I developed for configuring and building OpenSSL and OpenLDAP with
CC=gcc2cl. It does things like force object extensions to .o, search -L
paths for -l libraries (libxxx.a, libxxx.lib, xxx.a, xxx.lib) and specify
them properly, dos2unix stdout/stderr, and filter out the source filename
from stdout/stderr that MSVC displays while compiling. This makes it work
with autoconf as used by OpenLDAP. I figure this may be generally useful.
Is it something that should go in the Cygwin distribution? If so, how do I
go about contributing it? I'd like to finish it off a bit more before
handing it over, and I will probably also do an ar2lib, and maybe an ld2link
if it proves necessary.
