ABIv0 / ABIv1 in AROS

Difficult to decide for me the Diff I send to Charlie was the first option. But now when thinking about I tend more to 2. Option. ALB42 (talk) 11:25, 23 December 2015 (CET)

VarArgs Versions of Functions

Currently I like the lcl[1] way the most, would be even possible to extent it to automatically keep track of strings. (Copy them internally and destroy them when the taglist is destroyed). But for the moment the array of PtrUInt and TAG_() is the cleanest and easiest approach. ALB42 (talk) 11:25, 23 December 2015 (CET)


Remove systemvartags and move all to the units where the nonvarargs version is. ALB42 (talk) 11:25, 23 December 2015 (CET)


I vote for introducing Amigalib to AROS (because the SDK also has it). There should be much more helper functions inside like the SetHook() function. ALB42 (talk) 11:25, 23 December 2015 (CET)


I prefer currently the 2. Option looks more clear and more close how you would write a Pascal Method

DoMethod(obj, methodname, [param1, params]) -> obj.methodname(param1, param2);

I strongly recommend the 1. Option because thats what the people are used to in Windows/Linux. And it work in many sources. If the Library is not there, the application writer has to check for its existence. maybe we can give there a hand by introducing special functions to check if all Libraries open correctly. Sometimes it's wanted the Library is not there (bsdsocket.library for example) ALB42 (talk) 11:57, 23 December 2015 (CET)
