- Subject: Porting question: cygwin equivalent of Linux getdirentries()?
I have a piece of Linux code I'm trying to port to cygwin which uses
sgtty.h (ioctl) and dirent.h (getdirentries) functions which are not
present in cygwin. Also endian.h was missing but I copied it over from
RedHat and that seems to work. I got round the sgetty problems by using
#ifdef __CYGWIN__ to patch in termios.h equivalents. But on the
dirent.h front the dirent struct in Cygwin is different from Linux in
that it has a long where Linux has an unsigned short ... I patched it
anyway and it compiles OK
counter < READ_GPR(V0_REG) && direntp->d_reclen > 0;
i++, counter += direntp->d_reclen, direntp=(struct dirent
counter < READ_GPR(V0_REG) && direntp->d_fd > 0;
i++, counter += direntp->d_fd, direntp=(struct dirent
The only problem remaining is I cannot find a cygwin equivalent of
getdirentries in Linux dirent.h and the program fails to link. I have
patched out the reference in the attached file and it compiles but will
obviously not work.
Do any of you know what cygwin function I could use in place of
I've tried googling for the past day and a half to no avail.
