checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler… no

This one was cracking my nuts for a moment:

when trying to install the freshest version of librtorrent on a vanilla unbutu box  I suddenly got this crazy error:

checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler… no

followed by:

 checking for proper overloaded template function disambiguation… no

configure: error: your compiler does not properly handle overloaded template function disambiguation

Kinda crazy huh? Installing the package ‘g++’ solved the problem.

Finally a good perl IDE for OS X!

For years I’ve been using the fantastic editor SubEthaEdit for all my development work in OS X. I use it for pretty much everything: editing html, text files,  code perl and php stuff, but I’ve always missed good perl integration. It has been anoying to switch to a terminal window just to debug perl code when php editing is so swift.

A few days ago I stumbled over Affrus and it was love at first sight.

Affrus offer stepped execution with breakpoints and a whole bunch of advanced features  that I miss from the well built Borland ide’s back in the DOS-days. The registration cost is almost $100 – but I’m happy to pay that when the evaluation period is over!
