Compilation on Linux

Post by pp.pp » 17 Mar 2019, 16:16

Hi,

I just checked out the code on http://hg.code.sf.net/p/hnsky/code and when I try to compile it on Linux (Ubuntu 18) using lazbuild I get the following error-message:

hns_Uast.pas(244,6) Fatal: (10022) Can't find unit hns_Upla used by hns_Uast

For me it seems a source-file named hns_Upla.pas is missing in the repository.

Was it forgotten to be checked in? Could this be fixed? (Or is there an error on my side?)

Thanks & Best Regards,
Patrick

Hello Patrick,

Unit hns_Upla.pas is copyrighted by the publisher since most code was taken from a book. I'm currently in contact with one of the authors and he is in favor of releasing the code under GPL3 but it is up to the book publisher to grant it. I hope to get soon, but the request is already 7 weeks old. If you want, I can send the missing units by email.

If I don't get permission, maybe I have to rewrite it or provide the compiled files.

Han
