^ Subject: Gap on the Macintosh

Dear Prof. David Bayer,

I have got the following question from M.Jiang:

I tried to compile GAP under Macintosh Programmers' Workshop with MPW C
version 3.2 without success. First, the gap.make file gives "undefined
objects" errors. After I changed the order of a few lines in the file,
MPW complained that it could not find the sysmac.c or sysmac.h file. I
changed the file names to system.c and system.h as I saw that there are
MPW specific lines there. Then the compiler complained about some
interrupt handling routines in system.c (confused by the signal() function).
I tried to comment out the line temporarily. The compiler then ran without
complaining, but the linker failed miserably (something about the global
data size, or heap size, or the like).

I wonder if the file gap.make was not intended to be used yet. I would
appreciate it if a ready-to-run tool be made available if the problem
I had was due to my setup.

Thanks a lot for your time.

Mingchang Jiang

as the "make_mpw" is written by you, I assume that it should be possible
to compile GAP using the MPW C. But which version is necessary to
compile and link it?

many thanks in advance
Frank Celler
