SDL for QNX

Just curious, has anyone used SDL with QNX 4.25\Photon 1.14?

Thanks.

AFAIK, there is no port to QNX 4.25. The first initial port for QNX 6.x has been done by Mike Gorchak.

A back port could be possible (?), but have in mind that QNX 4.25 doesn’t support threads.

Reading the description for tfork(), it looks like threads are supported, but
with some minor differences from the classic concept of threads. For example,
in QNX 4.25, the new ‘thread’ (created by tfork() ) shares the same code and
data as the parent, but gets a new stack and becomes a new process.

Maybe these differences would not prevent a successful port of SDL?

Or, more likely the question is moot, if I am the only one asking…

That’s simply a nice and unsuccessful trial for implementing thread support.
It’s realy crap …

With minor differences ?? A process is not a thread … there is no THREAD support.

No, SDL works without thread support.

Use QNX6 …
