thanks for doing the BeOS port.
Here's a few random comments:
+ Please use the latest CVS. Do not use 1.0b3.
+ Do not use gcblock=hash. There is no reason to use it any longer.
Unfortunately, gcblock=mmap is a misnomer at this very moment; it does
neither rely nor even use mmap(). So BeOS's not supporting mmap()
is not a reason to go use gcblock=hash
+ About sockets; Java does not assume that sockets are file descriptors.
It is even worse: it does assume that they can be represented as integers.
If that is not the case in BeOS, then we would have to use a kaffe.util.Ptr
instead and dynamically allocate space; this would be kind of a drag.
