He notes that the vtbl scheme is different. He is hoping that others will help test the changes using these two compilers on the various platforms where this same code is used. Bert's details|

Enclosed is xptcall for alpha/nt target..
It is a variation of the IRIS port (only targeted for win32).
Notice the last 2 files (the change to mozilla\xpcom\build\makefile.win and mozilla\xpcom\build) are needed because I was unable to figure how to do a "declspecexport" from the assembler ASAXP ... if some knows how to do that then those last 2 files won't be needed.
I have had someone look over this code at bridge.com (the entry point to compaq/gem compiler team) and this code was given the OK. I consider it "done".
This code lives in the files where the name includes 'alpha' in the win32 directory.

I am attaching a patch which contains my Linux Alpha xptcall code. It passes TestXPTCInvoke and TestXPC on my machine which runs kernel 2.2.7, glibc 2.1.1, and egcs 1.1.2. I have not tested it with older GNU compilers such as gcc 2.8.x. From looking at the Linux x86 code, I gather that the vtable layout is a little different for those compilers and the code will need minor modifications in order to work properly.
I am not sure how much of the code can be used for OpenVMS Alpha and/or Digital UNIX. Currently the code is dependent on the g++ name mangling convention and a few GNU extensions so I'm not sure how useful it will be for the other systems. Hopefully the comments in the code are detailed enough to help people attempting a port.

Duncan says this is all working. He did the code for old cfront style 'this' adjustment for others to use too!

I have started porting to the platform based on the code for Linux ARM. The InvokeByIndex code works correctly when used with TestXPTCInvoke. I am currently working on making TestXPC function correctly.
I am doing the porting work with egcs-1.1.2 on NetBSD 1.4P (NetBSD-current snapshot from a couple of days ago).
