Pole vaulting over obstacles

Posted on: May 23, 2010

Well, it has been almost a couple of weeks since my last post, but I have my reasons. With the help of all my mentors at drizzle especially Monty, I ‘ve literally pole vaulted my way through several obstacles and yet I ‘m not “Scot free” ( I initially had the intentions of posting only after my first branch but it turns out that it ain ‘t gonna happen for some more time 😦 ).

Turns out that CentOS and FreeBSD had older versions of boost(1.33) on the other hand I was coding with boost::program_options 1.39. This meant that I could not use some of the newer functions like implicit_value(). Monty forced in the upgrade of boost in every machine which solved this issue. Thanks a tonne Monty!!!

Another issue that bugged me a lot while coding my first branch was the older compiler version in CentOS(and unfortunately, it still does). But now, CentOS has upgraded to the gcc44 compiler. 🙂 🙂 (happy thoughts!!).

The last and worst of my issues at hand which is yet to be solved by the is that we are not sure as to how to make several programs share the same configuration file but access it’s own section. The documentation of configuration file processing is a but weakly documented. 😦 So this is the issue at hand which is yet to be solved. If we get through this then my first refactor branch will follow shortly.
