I love it, but is it a good place to enumerate things that are _missing_ from BeOS, or things that don't fall into a BeBook kit section? Syscalls, constants, typedefs, as well as more complex topics, such as how to adapt configure scripts and makefiles cleanly, with common issues and solutions. Preferrably with style considerations. Beyond the C language. Creating BeOS patches is pointless if the original authors won't apply them. The world is moving too fast for us to keep patching the same things over and over, keeping diffs on the side. How about an up-to-date wiki (or whatever) version of "Porting UNIX Applications" ? :P > > Is there still an active(!)

I don't know how you guys feel, but I think the community might be stretched over too many sites, to many small forums, lacking "critical mass". (For "developer relations", the mailinglists have been the most productive for me. BeShare and IRC somewhat less.) ... > And to answere your original question, I don't have a > personal list of "porting unix apps" issues. :-( Thank you anyway, Stephan. :) The BeBook, the BeDevTalk FAQ, Martin C. Brown's book, and our collective experience is a good start. Best, Jonas Sundström.
