DJELF (DOSX)

Hi Japheth,

from http://www.geocities.com/dborca/djgpp/elf/djelf.html: "This is an experimental patch. It is designed to bring ELF as optional target (C/C++), without affecting COFF functionality (your DJGPP will still produce COFF by default)."

*ELF executables which run in True Flat mode
*compatible with Linux shared objects
*dynamically loadable libc.so, libm.so, libstdc++.so
*can still link against static libraries (libc.a, ...)
*requires no change to C/C++ code, only minor changes to Asm code

I also read about True Flat mode if reading about HX Extender. I don't know much about this topic...is this interesting for using DJGPP with HX?

Bye
Flo

No, ELF is not supported (and not needed).

I heard about this a while back (even downloaded it, heh) but didn't try it (too lazy / preoccupied with other stuff).

If anyone here tries it and has any opinions on its use, post 'em here!! :-D
