Can not build GMT5 on AIX system using xlc and xlC compilers
|Target version:||Candidate for next minor release|
When built GMT5 on AIX system using xlc and xlC compilers, I got the following error messages:
[ 9%] Building C object src/CMakeFiles/gmtlib.dir/common_sighandler.c.o
"gmt-5.1.0/src/common_sighandler.c", line 144.21: 1506-022 (S) "rip" is not a member of "struct __jmpbuf".
"gmt-5.1.0/src/common_sighandler.c", line 163.87: 1506-045 (S) Undeclared identifier sys_siglist.
How can I solve this problem? Thank you very much!

- Status changed from New to Feedback
This section of GMT is very non-portable, with different structure members and approaches on different non-Linux systems. Would you be able to help determine what changes would need to be done to work on AIX? See common_sighandler.c and the various #define statements hear the top to abstract out this ugly behavior. If you are able to find another #ifdef AIX (not sure what the name is) and define a proper UC_IP function then let us know. None of us have access to AIX.
An alternative is to add an #else clause to do something benign and basically disable this aspect of the code (instead of not compiling as now).

- Tracker changed from Support to Bug
- Project changed from GMT/FORTRAN API to GMT
- Assignee set to Florian
- Target version set to Candidate for next minor release
- Affected version set to all
- Platform set to other
Did not notice this was posted under GMT FORTRAN API. I'm moving it to the main GMT tracking since it is a problem in GMT, not the Fortran API. I am also flagging it as a bug since it causes failure to install. And finally, passing the baton to Florian.
