between this and his comments about the gpl, i'd be a bit wary to try anything written by imad. for the compiler issue it's pretty much true for many systems that code compiled even on the same machine can produce different binaries for the same source. in addition, although i can't find a reference, i remember reports that visual c++ can include garbage data in generated binaries. running around spreading fud about others work to boost your own is the sign of a developer with little confidence in their own work. kevin --=20 simple four line sigs - fork()'ed on 37058400 bandwidth friendly; nice to do. meatspace place: home some admins clueless. --netiquette haiku 2001 --Dxnq1zWXvFF0Q93v Content-Type: application/pgp-signature Content-Disposition: inline -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE7XVogSWViC/JcvFsRAimTAKDyMn3TD3YGTSvghoEocBVON/1TeQCeNZEW /5SN1BhrW4Qxr2V27VAn3DU= =s2dZ -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- --Dxnq1zWXvFF0Q93v--
