itex2MML Plugin Update

I’ve updated my itex2MML plugin to version 0.7. This fixes a bug where some people were getting an error of the form

open2: fork failed: Resource temporarily unavailable at [path_to_MovableType]/plugins/itex2MML.pl line nn


on rebuilding an entry which uses MathML.

The itex2MML executable is unchanged from the January 1 version.

Re: itex2MML Plugin Update

Hello,

I was just wondering - I have the misfortune of being stuck on a Windows machine, and have been trying to compile the itex2MML program using the Cygwin environment, but I keep getting the following:
gcc -c -o y.tab.o y.tab.c y.tab.c:6: error: parse error before string constant y.tab.c:6: warning: data definition has no type or storage class make: *** [y.tab.o] Error 1 
You wouldn’t happen to have any idea why this occurs, would you? I’m using GCC 3.3.1, in case you’re wondering.

Thanks.

Oops, figured out what the problem was! Commenting out line 6 in y.tab.c, i.e, the one that begins with
__IDSTRING(yyrcsid, "\$NetBSD: skeleton.c,v ...
suffices to get rid of the errors, and the code then compiles and runs just fine. Sorry about that.

Re: itex2MML Plugin Update

James Graham had some related compilation problems on Linux. I’ve posted a new, cleaned-up version of the distribution which should clear up these compilation problems.
