• ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of Jansson 2.13.1 uploaded.

    From [via djgpp-announce@delorie.com]" <@21:1/5 to All on Fri Feb 26 17:24:43 2021
    This is a port of Jansson 2.13.1 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

    Jansson is a C library for encoding, decoding and manipulating JSON data.
    Its main features and design principles are:

    Simple and intuitive API and data model
    Comprehensive documentation
    No dependencies on other libraries
    Full Unicode support (UTF-8)
    Extensive test suite

    Jansson is licensed under the MIT license; see LICENSE in the source distribution for details.

    DJGPP specific changes.

    - The library requires an entropy source to seed the hash function.
    This can either be a driver or a random data file. On plain DOS
    one such driver, NOISE.SYS, can be obtained from:
    Please read the instructions carefully. This driver works on DOS
    and may be on some versions of Windows but it does not work for all
    versions of Windows. For XP it does not work and I have found no
    replacement. Alternatively a random data file can be used.
    It will be found by the library at run-time by evaluating the
    RANDFILE environment variable.

    - There are no user visible changes. Only small changes have been
    done to get the library compiled.

    - The port has been configured and compiled on WinXP SP3 and Win98SE.
    There is no guarantee that this may be possible with any other DOS-
    like OS. Due to the use of long file names it will not be possible
    to configure and compile without LFN support. The port has been
    compiled using gcc346 and bnu2351b.

    As usual, all djgpp specific files (diffs, README files, etc.) are stored
    in the "djgpp" directory. The sources have been configured to be build
    in the "_build" directory. If for some reason it does not work for you,
    delete its contents and configure from scratch again.

    Please read the docs to become familiar with this product.
