    Dear all,
    I would like to compile Klayout on my computer with Visual Studio 2015 Comunity Edition (VC++ version 14.0) and Qt version 5.7.1.
    The requirements are Qt 4.8 and Visual Studio 2010 (VC++ version 10.0), but on my computer there is this tool and I don't like to downgrade it and finally I would like to contribute to improve the klayout code.
    I started updating the source code:
    https://wiki.qt.io/Transition_from_Qt_4.x_to_Qt5
    and now I finished the modifications
    Now there are a lot of errors on tlString.h, dbMatrix.h
    ...
    1> antObject.cc
    1> antPlugin.cc
    1> antPropertiesPage.cc
    1> antService.cc
    1> antTemplate.cc
    1> dbGDS2Converter.cc
    1>c:\users\ingpa\documents\workspace_vs2015\klayout-0.24.9\src\tlString.h(688): error C2039: 'Exception': is not a member of 'tl'
    .....
    tlString.h(688):
    KLAYOUT_DLL void from_string (const std::string &s, double &v) throw (tl::Exception);
    ...
    ...
    1> dbMemStatistics.cc
    1> dbOASIS.cc
    1>c:\users\ingpa\documents\workspace_vs2015\klayout-0.24.9\src\dbMatrix.h(53): error C2039: 'DPoint': is not a member of 'db'
    dbMatrix.h(53)
    typedef db::DPoint displacement_type;


    I build with STLPort 5.2.1,Python 3.4,Ruby 2.1.3 and I put in config.h the code
    //------------------------------------------------------------------------
    // Error C2338 <hash_map> is deprecated and will be REMOVED. Please use <unordered_map>.
    // You can define _SILENCE_STDEXT_HASH_DEPRECATION_WARNINGS to acknowledge that you have received this warning.
    // klayout C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\include\hash_map 17
    //------------------------------------------------------------------------
    #define _SILENCE_STDEXT_HASH_DEPRECATION_WARNINGS 1

    Have you got some suggestions in order to proceed with the porting?

    Best regards
    Paolo

    Hi Paolo,

    Thanks for your wish to contribute. But you don't need to port. It's already done.

    KLayout 0.25 will be Qt 5 compatible. You can try the development snapshot from http://www.klayout.de/build.html. It builds with Qt 5.5.1 on my Ubuntu 16.10 LTS.

    Please note that currently there is no VC++ support and I guess I will drop that (I spent nights on getting VC++ through, so I'm kind of tired now). I'll try to go for MinGW/gcc as the build platform. That should be possible already since the Linux build script should run on MSYS too. But I have not tried yet.

    Contribution is a good point. I should basically move to GitHub for supporting this. The problem is that there are many test cases and even code pieces that represent non-public IP and I am not able to publish them. Hence a private repo. I'm not prepared for separating them off yet.

    Regards,

    Matthias

    Hi Matthias,

    seriously - you developed the best Chip Design software for my MEMS application I have ever used before. Thank you very much! I would be very happy if you are able to move to github and I understand the problem with IP. But please upload the code!

    Many greetings!

    You're welcome :-)

    I shall add that I am able to build on Windows 7 using MSYS2 and the mingw 64bit gcc toolchain with Qt 5.5, Python 3.5 and Ruby 2.4. That's not VC++, but at least it's finally a native Windows executable. MSYS2 has received a lot of attention and is well supported so I assume that will enable usage of a lot of native Python and Ruby packages.

    Regards,

    Matthias

    Hi Mathias,
    Thanks again - is this the official Github Repository - I would like to share my Python code for automated MaskFrames and Automated Alignment Marks?! What do you think about pull request on Github?

    Many Greetings!

    Hi,

    That's the core application code there. No scripts please. You can create your own repo and share your code there.

    Eventually I'd like to start maintaining a Wiki page there linking to the related projects.

    Regards,

    Matthias

    marmei,

    You could add it to TRT or E4K if you like, depending on which is the better fit. I need to move those to Github too at some point...

    to marmei: did you managed to post your script for automated mask frame and alignement?
    i may be inetrested to see how it works.
