one minor concern I had an #import warning (I do want to use #import as I will use many files developed on MacOSX, with Apple's tool), how could I pass the additional '-Wno-import' compiler flag to the compiler invoked in the makefile? (without editing GNUstep's makefile, of course!)


When I ran my simple test program I had plenty (about 4) unwanted log. what's that?

Ignoring it.

2005-04-21 00:24:54.000 deux[2260] Disallowed time zone name `E. Australia Standard Time'. 2005-04-21 00:24:54.000 deux[2260] Using time zone with absolute offset 0.

Well, the last two are because '.' are not allowed in time zone names in GNUstep. I'm not sure why that is, though.

On top of that I try to 'deploy' my application without GNUstep by renaming my GNUstep installation's top directory, and adding <GNUstep>\System\Tools to the System's PATH. I get a disturbing log:
2005-04-21 00:24:02.000 deux[464] No path specified for bundle

Which bundle?
I'm not sure.
(but it did work, anyway).

Any idea on how to deploy an application without GNUstep?
My problem is I want to do an application installer for plain user, which will goes in ProgramFile or wherever the user choose, I don't want to create or require others tool and manual installation for the user, but I'm OK to copy a big directory hierarchy.

I don't really know how to do this, but I imagine you could copy all the libs into your app bundle and have the main executable really be a script which sets up the paths correctly...

This would work better with the latest CVS stuff (which won't be released for a month or two).
