I don't know if that was any sensible thing to do but, in parser.cpp, line 12022
and 12023 I made a few attempts at replacing "ssize_t"

ssize_t idx1 = std::min(Local_Vector[0], Local_Vector[1]);
ssize_t idx2 = std::max(Local_Vector[0], Local_Vector[1]);


First by "int_least32_t" and then by "unsigned int" and finally "int_least64_t",
but every time only got an  error "conversion de 'size_t' en 'int', perte

processor machine.

Any further advice?

taking that error (from clean source, I assume) means that, for some reason, no
header is included which provides 'ssize_t'.  after a quick look on my system, I
think including 'unistd.h' would do.  alternatively, you could, at the top of
whichever .cpp file, add a definition (ideally with a '#ifndef' guard) like:
  #define ssize_t int

POSIX guarantees a max of 32767, I think.

I made a search for "unistd.h" and could not find it neither in HG-POV nor in
POV-Ray 3.8 sources. what path should I include from? I tried without path and
it is not found.

should have written: guarantees at least a maximum of 32767.

it's not part of an application, it's a system header (well, it is here, on a
Slackware GNU/Linux box).  turns out on my box just including 'stdio.h' is
enough.

jr@crow:1:tmp$ locate unistd.h | grep /usr/include
/usr/include/unistd.h
/usr/include/sys/unistd.h
/usr/include/asm-x86/unistd.h
/usr/include/bits/unistd.h
/usr/include/linux/unistd.h
/usr/include/asm-generic/unistd.h
jr@crow:2:tmp$ cat mr.c
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void) {
  ssize_t a, b, c;
  a = -1, b = 0, c = 1;
  printf("ssize_t vals: %zd  %zd  %zd\n", a, b, c);
  return 0;
}

jr@crow:3:tmp$ c99 mr.c
jr@crow:4:tmp$ ./a.out
ssize_t vals: -1  0  1
jr@crow:5:tmp$


(the 'c99' is a shell alias for the compiler)

and, although I don't "speak" C++, I was able to confirm that it should work if
you include 'stdio.h'.

jr@crow:6:tmp$ c### [at] mrcpp
#include <iostream>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void) {
  ssize_t a, b, c;
  a = -1, b = 0, c = 1;
  std::cout << "ssize_t vals:" << a << "  " << b << "  " << c << "\n";
  return 0;
}

jr@crow:7:tmp$ c++ mr.cpp
jr@crow:8:tmp$ ./a.out
ssize_t vals:-1  0  1
jr@crow:9:tmp$

Thanks
I tried all manners of include suggested to no success... However, this seemed
to do it for me, added after line 47 of parser.cpp below #include <algorithm> :


#if defined(_MSC_VER)
#include <BaseTsd.h>
typedef SSIZE_T ssize_t;
#endif


Now I have another error, Which I boldly assume unrelated:
line 479  expression not evaluated to constant:
char tmp_compound[4+strlen(Get_Token_String(CYLINDER_TOKEN))];
as well as "Impossible d'utiliser 'this' dans une expression constante" (for the
same line)

web search brings me here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/fr-fr/cpp/error-messages/compiler-errors-1/compiler-error-c2131?view=vs-2019

I interpret it as an incentive to initialize some variable or iterator index
beforehand? I am standing still in the dark waiting for your lights !

I forgot to mention that this line 479 was now in parser_strings.cpp

I had not realised you're on Redmond's finest.

I wonder whether using either the Linux "sub-system" supplied with Windows 10,
aiui, or an installation of 'cygwin', would not make all these errors/problems
go away.

one hack-ish workaround could be to separate out the operations, ie in C I might
do something like:

size_t const n = strlen(Get_Token_String(...));
char tmp_compound[4 + n] = {'\0'};

some "lights", more like a 15W bulb.  :-)  good luck.

So instead of this:
char tmp_compound[4+strlen(Get_Token_String(CYLINDER_TOKEN))];

....and after adding the same include in parser_strings.cpp, I used:

const ssize_t n = strlen(Get_Token_String(CYLINDER_TOKEN));
char tmp_compound[4 + n];

And still error messages from the same line not eval to const also tried with
const int n = strlen(Get_Token_String(CYLINDER_TOKEN));

two points.  the 'strlen()' function returns a 'size_t', that is, an unsigned
value, while both 'int' and 'ssize_t' hold signed values; however, if that was
the problem you would have seen "warning: conversion to..." messages, not
errors.

second, I just downloaded 'Hg.226.Bigarade' and built it; one single warning
message aside, the program builds cleanly (on a Slackware GNU/Linux box).  so,
sorry, cannot help any further, but my advice is: either create a virtual
machine running a Linux, or install 'cygwin'[*], or explore whether the Windows
10/Ubuntu thing works for you.

(I read the following quote in someone's signature block years back
(paraphrased): "computers are like air-conditioning, they stop working when you
open Windows."  ;-))

[*] there are other s/wares too, like 'MinGW'.
