Bug found (Bool vs Bool 32)

Cuneiform for Linux

Bug Description

1. cuneiform-linux-1.0.0\cuneiform_src\Kern\cline\sources\src\cpp\clinefunc.cpp

See there the function "Bool CopyData(const void* from, void* to, int size)" . It conflicts with its definition in:


Bool32 CopyData(const void* from,void* to,int size);

In both places should be either Bool or Bool32.

2. Same thing in another place:


Function: PUMA_FUNC(Bool32) PUMA_Done()


Its definition:
DEC_FUN(Bool, PUMA_Done,())

In both places should be either Bool or Bool32.

My MS VC++ 6 compiler failed to compile cuneiform until I fixed 2 these bugs in the compiled sourcecodes.

Please fix these 2 bugs officially.

Or, even better, bzr diff.

Sorry, I am under Windows. Never dealt with Linux. Here is the manual description:

1. cuneiform-linux-1.0.0\cuneiform_src\Kern\cline\sources\src\cpp\clinefunc.cpp line 97


Bool CopyData(const void* from, void* to, int size) {

is now:

Bool32 CopyData(const void* from, void* to, int size) {

2. cuneiform-linux-1.0.0\cuneiform_src\Kern\hhh\puma.h line 238


DEC_FUN(Bool, PUMA_Done,())

is now:

DEC_FUN(Bool32, PUMA_Done,())

I am sorry, but it's probably not worth to me to download http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/diffutils.htm and learn it besides - just fot such elementary bug (one-line of text).

It is unclear (the bug) the way I described it? I hope it's clear enough - in a good way. So that you - the main contributors - can already understand clearly what the bug is (without much effort).

Please don't forget to fix this bug - otherwise sources do not compile under Windows.

It's up to you but no sane person will accept a patch that is bigger than 2 lines without a diff.

I'd say "that depends". :) In such big projects like this one - where patches are so frequent and numerous - yes.

But in small projects where the new bugs are found 2-3 times per month - even the manual bug report form is acceptable.

Of course, if some bug is to take more than 2 lines of text - I will surely use the diff tool. ;)

Good luck with your work.

I put online the Windows CuneiForm-Linux v1.0.0 that I compiled in MS VC++ 6.0.

Now it can be discussed on my forum here:


Here is the download link:

Actually, I want to use it for DjVu OCR purposes.
