Ø  Using EMX is a shortcut to achieve the usage of spawn() over fork(). It might not be the cleanest choice but it works. Maybe Pavel finds the time to make the patch distinct to cygwin itself.


What do you mean exactly by this ?

Unfortunately i really don’t have much time to work on this. Additionally… make’s code IMHO is a horrible mess full of #ifdef’s, if we talk about this, then i would say it needs complete refactoring. But it’s unlikely that this will ever be done because make supports lots of old platforms, many of which almost fell out of use, and nobody will be able to test them all in a reasonable time frame. Unless you (Make developers) make a decision to drop these platforms completely.


Kind regards,
