I needed to include the following into errno.h to be able to build a recent version of binutils:

  1. /* necessary to build recent binutils: */
  2. #define ENOTSUP 129
  3. #define EOVERFLOW 132

and suggest this may be done in general.

Commentaire

That would be a bug in binutils, then; you should file a bug report on their tracker.

On what basis have you chosen the values 129, and 132? Both are greater than Windows' _sys_nerr limit, and will thus produce unacceptable results, if passed to strerror(), or perror(). Consequently, I will not accept that, as a general principle, these definitions may be arbitrarily adopted.

FWIW, the recommended work-around for this issue is, in the client code, after including <errno.h>, to insert definitions such as

  1. #ifndef ENOTSUP
  2. #define ENOTSUP ENOSYS
  3. #endif
  4. #ifndef EOVERFLOW
  5. #define EOVERFLOW ERANGE
  6. #endif
