RE: What does "(skip)" mean ???

Hi John,


Note that since a few release series ago we stopped using .symbol files to export symbols but instead use a __declspec(dllexport) approach to export them.


See in your checkout in the _GLIB_EXTERN part—if it is not defined in your build files, define it as it is in, and things should do.


With blessings, and cheers!

Yes - that was it.!  My ".symbols" file was getting converted into

module definition files (".def" files).  The file was very subtly

different for a Debug build compared to a Release build.  It looks like

the difference was due to this function:-




>From what I can tell, it's only supposed to be relevant in a Debug

build.  But there must have been a time when it was somehow getting

included in a Release build (and presumably causing some kind of

problem).  My ".def" file just made sure that it didn't get exported

when it wasn't needed.


Anyway... whatever the problem was, it looks like it eventually got

fixed and I can now get rid of my def/symbols files..  Sorry for the noise.
