Thanks, now both are built


As side note this test looks strange to the compiler and I agree:

tcp_class.cc: In member function ‘virtual octave_value octave_tcp::subsasgn(cons
t string&, const std::list<octave_value_list>&, const octave_value&)’:
tcp_class.cc:169:29: warning: logical not is only applied to the left hand side
of comparison [-Wlogical-not-parentheses]
           if (! u.length () > 0)
tcp_class.cc:169:15: note: add parentheses around left hand side expression to s
ilence this warning
           if (! u.length () > 0)
               (            )

For the serialport not building comment, it is the last directy compiled, so may not have reached before the error occured.

Let me know if it doesnt get compiled for you.

Looks like cygwin puts that define in  <sys/socket.h> for some reason rather than ioctl.h

Im push a change up to dev that will hopefully fix it

For what I see there are 4 cases where FIONREAD is used

$ grep -rH FIONREAD *
src/serial/serial_class_lin.cc:      ioctl (fd, FIONREAD, &available);
src/serialport/serialport_class_lin.cc:      ioctl (fd, FIONREAD, &available);
src/tcp/tcp_class.cc:  ioctl (get_fd (), FIONREAD, &available);
src/udp/udp_class.cc:  ioctl (get_fd (), FIONREAD, &available);

tcp_class.cc and udp_class.cc are compiled
serial_class_lin.cc fails
serialport_class_lin.cc seems ignored from the building.

comparing the headers between the files I see that the following include's all pull FIONREAD


but these two not


and they are the only similar one in serial_class_lin.cc
