hmmm ... I was hoping to get some insight, but I don't see how line 152 could
be the problem.
63 if (use_mkfifo)
64 gpin_name = tmpnam ();
65
66 ##Mode: 6*8*8 == 0600
67 [err, msg] = mkfifo (gpin_name, 6*8*8);
68
69 if (err != 0)
70 error ("ginput: Can not open fifo (%s)", msg);
71 endif
72 endif
<snip>
151 unwind_protect_cleanup
152 if (use_mkfifo)
153 unlink (gpin_name);
154 endif
155 end_unwind_protect
If line 152 produces an warning, why not line 63?
Perhaps the unwind_protect construct should be removed to allow us to debug
this?
Try the attached.
