I know the docs say bidwatcher is a linux program, but
certainly up to version 1.3.3 is compiled and ran okay
on my Sun Ultra 60.
I've downloaded 1.3.5, as 1.3.3 thinks auction
on www.ebay.co.uk has finished, even though at has 3
days to run. Hence I thought I'd update to the latest
Now I find bidwatcher fails to compile with gcc 3.1 (I
can't recall what version of gcc I used to compile
verion 1.3.3 of bidwatcher). The compilation error
centres around 'ofstream' being undeclared. I'm not a
C++ programmer, but a search of the web showed an
example using ofstream, that had the line
I don't seem to have this header or whatever it is.
When 'configure' runs it says:
checking for unistd.h... yes
checking fstream usability... no
checking fstream presence... no
checking for fstream... no
checking fstream.h usability... no
checking fstream.h presence... no
checking for fstream.h... no
checking sstream usability... no
checking sstream presence... no
checking for sstream... no
checking strstream.h usability... no
checking strstream.h presence... no
checking for strstream.h... no
Clearly I seem to have a lack of 'fstream' support.
Could this be added without too much effort?
As I say, bidwatcher used to work with Solaris, so I'm
surprised it is now broken. It may well be a change of
compiler at this end I admit
