Subject: Re: back-perl and password/user synchronization
I've been working to get 2.0.23+back-perl to compile on the Win32/MSVC++
build with Win32 Perl from ActiveState.
Question about servers/slapd/back-perl/external.h ...
extern BI_db_config perl_back_db_config;
extern BI_op_bind perl_back_bind;
extern BI_op_search perl_back_search;
These are 3 lines I copied at random from extern.h. The compiler
complains about every 'extern' declaration in external.h, and frankly, I
can't say I blame it.
Can anyone explain what these lines are doing.
I'm assuming that if it's a prototype for an external function it would
be in the form...
extern return_type function_name( function_args );
but theses are not in that form. back-ldbm uses the extern prototype
form and does compile, eg...
extern int ldbm_back_db_init LDAP_P (( BackendDB *bd ));
extern int ldbm_back_db_open LDAP_P (( BackendDB *bd ));
Can anyone shed some light on this for me please? Is this a GCC vs.

I don't think back-perl has even been supported on Unix for a couple of
back-perl built fine on Solaris 2.8 with 2.1.0 alpha, so I think
it is reasonably good shape.
