[Bf-committers] Help Needed, Pointer Confusion
Tue, 18 Nov 2003 09:13:17 -0500
I have been beating my head against the problem of OS X plugins not
working, and I believe I have found a number of the issues. At the
moment, though, the problem seems to be in the passing of pointers back
and forth between several functions in dynlib.c and texture.c (and thus
presumably sequence as well). Alas, my knowledge of C founders when it
comes to pointers (I know, I know... "C IS pointers!") so I am looking
for someone who can help me understand the various function and
parameter pointers going on here.
Knowledge of the OS X aspects isn't needed: I'll take care of that... I
just need to bounce some emails off someone with a good understanding
of pointers so I can understand why the parameters are getting
mysteriously "lost" somewhere between opening the plugin and calling
the first function "get_plugin_version" (paraphrased).
Thanks in advance,
