<paakku> In elinks/src/network/state.h, there is an assumption that values of errno are between 0 and 100000. Now looking at glibc-2.5/sysdeps/mach/hurd/bits/errno.h, I see that you're using values outside this range. Have there been problems because of this?

<paakku> by allocating just one number from our enum connection_state for system errors, and then stashing the errno value in a separate variable.
<paakku> Anyway, if you see this cause any user-visible bugs in ELinks, please report.
+ <kahmalo> I mentioned here on 2008-05-26 that ELinks assumes errno values are between 0 and 100000 whereas the Hurd uses other values. I fixed this in ELinks last weekend; the most recent 0.12 and 0.13 snapshots should include the fix. If you find any remaining errno assumptions, please post to:
+ <kahmalo> or to one of our mailing lists.
+ <kahmalo> I guess the pflocal select() bug is the primary hindrance to running ELinks on the Hurd. Has any decision been made on how that will be fixed?
