Re: {pkgsrc-users} need help with C# -- how to deal with different time_t widths?

Yes, as always... I had posted it a couple of minutes later.

What would be the advantage of using classes for integers?
Passing integers by reference doesn't sound very efficient.
(But anyway, since my problem is about modeling a C data
structure in C# I guess that simple types are the way to go.)

Thanks - this works.
Unfortunately, the assumption that time_t fits into a pointer
is also in exported interfaces of the underlying gtk-sharp
library, so I needed some typecasts to compensate.
I think a better fix would be to make the type used for
time_t a 64-bit integer throughout the code, but that
would be an interface change.
Could you please have a look at pkgsrc/x11/gnome-sharp and
check that my fix is correct?

best regards
