I've contacted Rich via IRC to ask about pthread_eintr. Specifically, what pthread_* functions make syscalls. I asked because I was surprised to find out most of my tests were for noth. Turns out there are only about 4 for which I haven't written tests (about 2 written). But then Rich implied the task itself is low priority with his question about my will to finish the test. Rich, maybe you meant to imply that I should start doing tests before I complete the incomplete ones? I'd wish you'd tell me these things explicitly. Anyway, assuming that is what I should do, I moved on to the task of adopting autoconf/gnulib tests (btw. they're both GPL...). Autoconf has about 4 trivial and/or obsolete tests for the whole of stdio. I think there's no merit in adopting those. Gnulib, on the other hand from what I've seen so far seems like it could be useful. Attached are potential files for adoption from gnulib/tests (see the grep). Other than that, there's also a certain gnulib/tests/unistdio/test-u8-printf1.h that seems to test wchar support. I'm not sure if it's utf-8 specific though. If you think this may be useful, I can whip up a few replacement functions and include that file too. So basically, I'm waiting your ok to start adopting these things into cluts. In the meanwhile I may finish pthread_eintr and later start string.c again. Thanks. Luka P.S. No real to-report today, hopefully there'll be one tomorrow.
