Apple's libdl?
Authored by: kyngchaos on Nov 14, '03 01:07:53PM

I noticed that Apple added libdl with Panther - linked to libSystem. I've always used dlcompat installed in the default /usr/local. Since you're overwriting Apple's, is there something wrong with it? It's nice to have Apple provide commonly used stuff like this - less for us to worry about - but if it's broken, it would be nice to know before I switch over.

Apple's libdl?
Authored by: blakers on Nov 14, '03 01:45:02PM

i didn't catch Apple's add of libdl .... thanks!

as for "is it broken" .... well, simply, i dunno

my 1st (no doubt unfair/unpopular) reaction is that I trust Peter O'Gorman's latest code (he's the latest dlcompat maintainer, it seems) that's been working for me forever a bit more than APple's recent "inclusion". i'm open minded on this, and may well eat my words ... but i'll personally wait to see that Apple's *isn't* broken before i *drop* the dev-dlcompat libs.

anyone out there with further insight on this?
