10 years agoFix missing @clicksequence problem with older Texinfo versions. master
Ben Pfaff [Tue, 4 Aug 2009 13:01:21 +0000 (06:01 -0700)]
Fix missing @clicksequence problem with older Texinfo versions.

The @clicksequence command was introduced in Texinfo 4.12, which a lot of
users do not yet have.  This commit fixes the problem by detecting whether
makeinfo supports @clicksequence and, if not, defining a macro for it as
a substitute.

We also need support for @clicksequence in texinfo.tex.  It is possible to
detect whether @clicksequence is defined using TeX code and, if not,
define a TeX macro for it.  However, I'm not sure how to do that.  So this
commit instead adds a known-good texinfo.tex to the source tree, which
should have the same effect.

I got fed up with battling against the Makefile which
gettext provides.  So I rolled my own instead.  This change provides
the following advantages over previous situation:

* It doesn't use recursive calls to $(MAKE).

* Merged and unmerged po files are properly seperated into
  the buildir and sourcedir respectively.  Consequently,
  po files get updated only when we really want them to be,
  and not (potentially) on every commit.

* The .pot file (and consequently the .po and .gmo files) now
  properly depend upon all the distributed source files.  There
  is no need to run "make -f Smake" to make it aware of new files.

* There's no more need of "timestamp" files.

* Potentially it's easier to add per-source-file options
  when generating the .pot file. (and thus avoid warnings about
  unrecognised extentions.

Change union value type to contain uint8_t types instead of char.

Make the members of the union value type in src/data/value.h be
uint8_t instead of char.  This is more logical since the contents
of values cannot be considered "strings" until they have been
formatted.  The unformatted values are merely arrays of bytes.

a char * type is being implicitly cast to a uint8_t * or vici-versa.

data needs to be re-encoded using recode_string.
