Subject Win64 progress at almost 50%; the challenging Win64<->UNO bridge looms
Date Sat, 01 Dec 2018 08:22:09 GMT

At least 81 modules (44.26%) successfully build on Win64 now, up from 67
(36.61%) before.

At present the build breaks in main/bridges, which I can hack past, but
then modules like cli_ure and i18npool break, probably because they need
the missing Win64 UNO bridge.

This Win64 <-> UNO bridge has to call arbitrary methods, translate
arbitrary exceptions, etc. between UNO and C++. It has to be written
predominantly in assembly language, and needs to implement the platform's
calling convention, deal with its ABI, RTTI, etc. - quite a challenge.

Wish me luck, or join and help?
