Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
One thing that cost me several days: the Geant4 build on Window/Cygwin/VC++ uses the "multithread-shared" library option /MD in VC++. This means you must build ALL libraries in that same mode. Many of them default to this, but not all do. Look at the documentation for your other library to figure out how to do this. For instance, in Coin one adds "--with-msvcrt=md" to its configure command-line (Coin is an open-source implementation of the Open Inventor viewer, http://coin3d.org ). In the absence of information, you could try setting CPPFLAGS=/MD.
There are several symptoms of library-mode problems. One is a bunch of duplicate symbols related to basic_string and other STL routines. Another symptom is a bunch of missing externals of the form __impl__SomeFunction. Another symptom is a warning about /NODEFAULTLIB:library related to libcmt.lib (but the program runs OK).
