sorry, my fault. Probably some old library lying around. Now it works after a complete re-built of octave-dev.

Octave changeset c241918d4c92, Fri Jan 19 08:09:21 2018 -0800:


void verror (octave::execution_exception&, const char *fmt, va_list args);

and there where no changes to this file since then.

So I currently can't see how this failure, which I can't reproduce, comes about.

Which is your Octave revision (changeset)?

Thanks for this update. However, I still cannot build the package with the current dev, getting

CXX="g++" CXXFLAGS="-g -O2 -I/usr/include/p11-kit-1 -Wno-int-to-pointer-cast -Wno-deprecated-declarations" mkoctfile -c pconnect.cc
In file included from parallel-gnutls.h:135:0,
                 from pconnect.cc:39:
pconnect.cc: In function ‘octave_value_list Fpconnect(const octave_value_list&, int)’:
error-helpers.h:65:31: error: no matching function for call to ‘verror(octave::execution_exception&, const char [73], const char*)’
         verror (e, _VA_ARGS_); \

This is perhaps unrelated to the current bug, but it does fit to the bug's description.

Building with current dev should now be fixed.

(There is still something to do for complete working with dev, but this is outside this bug.)

I posted this patch originally under http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?52877. This error is not specific to OSX, same under GNU/linux.

after this patch errors remain about inability to cast octave_value_list to octave_value

I can confirm this failure trying to install on OSX with clang.

I get the following error when building the parallel package (3.1.1) using octave-dev:

pserver.cc: In function ‘octave_value_list Fpserver(const octave_value_list&, int)’:
pserver.cc:1112:32: error: ‘the_interpreter’ is not a member of ‘octave::application’
           octave::application::the_interpreter () -> interactive (false);

It does build using octave-stable.
