   I am a new comer in this mailing list, then sorry if the below
question(s) is a well known FAQ.

  I simply try to install and run gccxml on a MacOSX/Panther.

  I have checkouted tag gccxml-0-6-0 and tried to work with that.
On a simple file (xxx.h) containing a simple code like :
class xxx {
  the command :
    gccxml xxx.h -fxml=xxx.xml
failes with something like :
   Error: Could not run /usr/local/gccxml/0.6.0/bin/gccxml:
   Too many open files
Jumping in the code of gxFront, it appears that gccxml
passes its time to spawn itself, then exhausting the capability of my
system (MacOSX/Panther).

   In the archive I have seen mails of someone that tried
to port and run on a MacOS-10.2 but nothing recent.

   Then questions :
- does gccxml work on MacOSX/Panther ?
- is the upper a well known problem ?

   In the archive, it is mentioned that there are some patches
   that should be applied to gcc-3-3-Panther.
- Do they apply on the GCC branch of my checkout ?
- How to apply back the patches ? (here I am lacking some cvs command
   to apply back the .diff modifs at once).
- In the .diff patch files, the repository seem to be different from
   what I have checkouted. (In fact things does not correspond
   also to what is in the README to build (for exa ../gccxml is
   clearly now ../GCC_XML)). Are the .diff files still valid ones ?

   Not clear to me what is the relationship of your gcc with
the one installed on my Mac and the relationship of these
program with gccxml.
- how gccxml knows your gcc ?
- do I have to patch the gcc of Panther ?

   Any help would be welcomed.

   Else, gccxml is in use in our things on Linux and Window and
it is appreciated. Having it working on Mac would be great...
