I recently discovered Mingw and so far I've been quite impressed, it has
certainly helped me get back interested in programming on Windows.
Currently I'm just starting a project to enable any OS (eventually, but
starting with Linux) to monitor the NT Event logs, currently the only
way to do this seems to be to use Microsoft's own API, hence my interest
in Mingw. I figured the best way to do with would be with some kind of
open and adaptable method, so I looked into XML-RPC.
All the major Linux programming languages seem to have this support
(PHP, Python, C/C++) but documentation on the Windows side in C/C++
seems a little thin. So I thought I could do this one of two ways.
Try to combine MingW with one of the XML-RPC libraries available (either
XMLRPC-C or XMLRPC-EPI). Has anyone had any luck with this and can
offer any pointers?
Secondly, use Java & RMI to allow a mostly cross-platform program but
with the Windows Specific bits in C. This I have already tried by it
seems I'm lacking the required sys/ipc.h, sys/shm.h and sys/mman.h for
the RMI header file. Any ideas where I could get these?
I would appreciate any assistance or advice someone can offer as I have
read the info on the MingW site and googled but nothing I've done seems
Thanks for your time
