Ticket #847 (closed defect: fixed)
mapscript.i are using C# keywords (string, in, out) as parameter causing SWIG compilation to fail.
|Reported by:||ykchoo@…||Owned by:||sgillies@…|
Three problems identified when compiling mapscript.i using SWIG (1.3.21) 1) C# (csharp) keywords are being used as parameters: string, in, and out. The files generated using SWIG (1.3.21) will not compile because of the keywords. For example "char *string" parameter is generated as "string string". Solution: renaming parameters with the keywords or use "#ifdef SWIGCSHAR" ... 2) The latest SWIG(1.3.21) has a bug in handling methods returning a pointer. For example "int *foo()" will be converted to "href int foo()". This will not work because href can only be used when defining parameter. Solution: Add a #ifdef, i.e. #ifndef SWIGCSHARP %include typemaps.i #endif 3) labelCacheMemberObj structure contain a member named string. Solution: edit the generated labelCacheMember.cs file "string string" to something like "string strings". I'm not sure what's the impact if it is possible to rename the "string" member.
