Description

I've downloaded Exiv2-0.20 and have been trying to compile it for the past
several days. I've got a C++ compiler that has very strict ANSI compliance
and this has been giving me problems compiling the source.
I've worked around a number of problems, but my C++ is very rusty, and
I've finally hit a road block that I can't get around. I thought may be this
group could help. For brevity, at the moment I'll only post the problem I
can't get around. Here are the errors I don't know how to fix. Any help
would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'd really like to start using this software now. Thanks.

We don't support this compiler because I don't have access to such a system. We support GCC, Clang and MSVC. Tooling up to support another compiler is a considerable undertaking. We have a build server which builds and tests trunk (and selected branches) when code is submitted. Supporting additional build systems requires continuous access to the platform.

While it desirable that Exiv2 builds and runs perfectly on any compiler and platform, that goal cannot be reached because implementations of C++ are so variable.
