For you non native English speakers, shooting yourself in the foot is
a methaphor, meaning that you pulled the trigger on your pistol
before you took it out of the holster. Here's how I just shot mine:
NT Versions of Pd through 0.23 have a file, pd.dll, which "externs" link
into. In version 0.24 I renamed this "pdlib.dll" to avoid confusing the
Gates debugger. However, I just realized this morning that this change
BREAKS ALL EXTERNS. The only people I know of who are impacted are myself
and Mark Danks but there may well be others.
I'm busy now trying to put out a release 0.25 mainly to fix problems in the
0.24 release... Should I leave "pdlib" the way it is in 0.24?
The SGI release 0.24 is in trouble too. Somehow the object files got
compiled non-optimized so that 0.24 is about 1/2 the speed of 0.23. Oops...
