Description:
The manual is definitely
catering more to LINUX users. If the windows release had come with a
make file I could have used that to work it out as the manual says but
it doesn't. 4.0.18 also still has the file include/dbug.h and not
include/my_dbug.h which stops compilation. The manual also says
udf_example.cc when the file in windows is udf_example.cpp . Just a
little more explanation in the manual would really make a big difference
to Windows/VC++ users frustration levels.

How to repeat:
see above

Suggested fix:
Build a VC++ project for to compile the sample mentioned in the
Manual. Add comments in the Manual about this project for the
Windows user.

For to build the VC++ UDF sample and when it is ready Paul will
write Manual's part.

The inclusion of my_dbug.h is not in the 4.0.20 source, so this problem should be fixed.

The documentation team will add some description in the manual of how to compile an udf on windows.

Paul I already pushed to 4.0 tree VC++Files/examples/udf_example
the project files for to be added in next Windows release, however
I got a server crash with 2 functions and reported them on bug
#3934 [Opn->Ver]: UDF on Windows crash the server.

Paul the VC++ projects files were already added to the BK 4.0 source tree
in the directory VC++Files/examples/udf_example:

udf_example.def
udf_example.dsp
udf_example.dsw

Any further clarification please let me know.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been addressed in the
documentation. The updated documentation will appear on our website
shortly, and will be included in the next release of the relevant
product(s).

Additional info:

Miguel provided info on compiling UDFs on Windows.
I added it to the manual following the instructions
for Unix.
