    compiling gaim for windows

    im working on a gaim plugin for windows. the i got glib and gtk adn everything, ive figured how to incorporate the plugin and whatnot..but apparently glib is built for *nix. it can't find sys/time.h, when i need something to run for windows. im thinking of replacing it but it uses unix timestamps and whatnot. ive been searching around for ideas but havent found anything. i check google groups too.

    anyone got any ideas?

    Write a new implementation following how windows does it. See MSDN for more info.

    Wait... why are you trying to compile gaim for Windows? There's AIM, deadAIM, AIM+, Trillian, and others... are you doing something cool? Anyway, I think that you might be able to get some source code if you contact the makers of those ^ versions of AIM...
    Away.

    there already is a version of gaim for windows...im writing a plugin for it.
    is it cool? i guess. im attempting to implement my 'bot' thingy into gaim so it actually does something.

    Lynux-Penguin: unix timestamps can be implemented in windows? or do you know of someplace where this has been done already?

    lol..

    Code:
    extern int wgaim_getsockopt(int socket, int level, int optname, void *optval, unsigned int *optlenptr);
    #define getsockopt( args... ) \
    wgaim_getsockopt( ## args )
    many more similar macros

    the error:
    error C2010: '.' : unexpected in macro formal parameter list

    illegal in c?

    im downloading cygwin and going to see if that helps
