HI Stefan and Konstantin, 

Thanks a lot for your messages. Sorry for my late reply, I only work on this project from Tuesday to Thursdays. I have 
run " make cmake" instead of "cd build; cmake" and this is the output regarding mhttpd:

/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/c++  -O2 -g -DNDEBUG -Wl,-search_paths_first -Wl,-

I see that in your outputs the openssl libs are in /opt/local/lib/ while mine are in /usr/lib/, and that is the only difference. 
I have checked that the libraries libssl.dylib and libcrypto.dylib are in my /usr/lib/, and indeed they are, so I don't 
understand the reason for the error, I will continue investigating. 

Thanks

Hi all, 

I have updated our daq computer to the latest OS 10.15 with the idea that then I will get all our daq 
programs running and will not need to update again in years to come. 
But now I am running unto even more problems trying to compile Midas. 
OS 10.15.3, Xcode 11.3 with commad line tools

I guess that I am maybe the first one trying to install MIDAS in this OS, so I am willing to help as much as I 
can with getting this going. I have found a solution to this by downgrading Xcode to version 10 
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/58524715/failing-to-compile-a-c-application-under-macos-catalina-10-15
If you don't have other solutions I will try to do that tomorrow.

Thanks

FWIW, I do not have macos 10.15. I have 10.13 at home and 10.14 in the office. Maybe Stefan has it?

> In file included from /Users/betacage/packages/midas/include/mfe.h:13:

Hmm... pthread.h should be there, I do not see any notice of it's removal in macos.

So I suspect a mis-installation of c++ compilers. In the past we had problems with this,
in addition to installing Xcode from the app store, one most install some missing stuff
manually ("XCode command line tools"), if I have it right, the command is "xcode-select --install".

If you figure out how to build it, I think midas will work just fine on the latest macos.

K.O.

No problem. No hurry.

> I have run " make cmake" instead of "cd build; cmake" and this is the output regarding mhttpd: ...

There should be also a line where mhttpd.cxx is compiled into mhttpd.o, we need to see what compiler
flags are used - I suspect the compiler uses header files from /usr/local/include while the linker
is using libraries from /usr/lib, a mismatch.

To save time, please attach the full output of "make cmake". There may be something else I want to see there.

If you do not use the mhttpd built-in https support (for best security I recommend using https from the apache httpd password protected https proxy),
then it is perfectly fine to build midas with NO_SSL=1.

K.O.

No, I'm stuck with 10.14 due to the current lack of 64-bit support of some programs.

I would try KOs proposal to do a "xcode-select --install".

Ok, in this case, I will update my office mac mini to 10.15.

Hi Konstantin, 

Any luck with Midas in OS 10.15? 
I have downgraded to Xcode 10.2.1 as suggested in the post linked in my first post, without any luck, I keep getting the same pthead.h error. 
MY gcc uses the 10.15 sdk despite having v 10.2.1 for Xcode and command line tools 

Darrens-Mac-mini:~ betacage$ gcc --version
Configured with: --prefix=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr --with-gxx-include-
dir=/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX10.15.sdk/usr/include/c++/4.2.1
Apple LLVM version 10.0.1 (clang-1001.0.46.4)
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin19.3.0
Thread model: posix
InstalledDir: /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin


and that is where I suspect the problem is. Will keep investigating next week. Thanks for your help.

Best I can tell, the problem is not in midas: pthread.h should be there, somewhere.

HI Konstain, 

Thanks for your reply. I have been investigating this issue of pthread in OS 10.15.  Found this forum post 
https://github.com/wjakob/nori/issues/16

that seem to suggest that pthread.h is in a different directory from OS 10.14 and on. And the end of the post the 
developer suggests that he has found a way to fix the Cmake to work so I have checked his code updates in here 
https://github.com/wjakob/nori/commit/be46cccc01a75b21dad1a3f61baa108fe644fc4b

I have added his lines 


if(APPLE)
   # Try to auto-detect a suitable SDK
   execute_process(COMMAND bash -c "xcodebuild -version -sdk | grep MacOSX | grep Path | head -n 1 | cut -f 2 -
d ' '" OUTPUT_VARIABLE CMAKE_OSX_SYSROOT)
   string(REGEX REPLACE "(\r?\n)+$" "" CMAKE_OSX_SYSROOT "${CMAKE_OSX_SYSROOT}")
   string(REGEX REPLACE "^.*X([0-9.]*).sdk$" "\\1" CMAKE_OSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET 
"${CMAKE_OSX_SYSROOT}")
 endif()

to my local pakages/midas/CMakeLists.txt and run cmake .., make install again but now I get a different error 

[  1%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/mfeo.dir/src/mfe.cxx.o
clang: error: invalid version number in '-mmacosx-version-
min=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/DriverKit19.0.sdk'
clang: warning: using sysroot for 'DriverKit' but targeting 'MacOSX' [-Wincompatible-sysroot]


I will continue investigating this issue tomorrow, but please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Also my version of cmake is 3.16.3

/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX10.15.sdk/usr/include/pthread.h

and this is what I see in my SDKs folder 

Darrens-Mac-mini:SDKs betacage$ pwd
/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs
Darrens-Mac-mini:SDKs betacage$ ls
MacOSX.sdk	MacOSX10.14.sdk	MacOSX10.15.sdk

So it looks like in this computer one needs to read the version of the SDK as pthread.h is not in MacOSX.sdk but in MacOSX10.15.sdk

Thanks

Another thought: Can you delete the build directory and run cmake again? Like

$ cd /midas/build
$ rm -rf *
$ cmake ..

If you have the old build cache and upgraded the OS in meantime, the cache needs to be rebuild.

Libcrypto seems to be part of the OpenSSL, so I am back to the original problem again. I did install OpenSSL via MacPorts. 

I have found this tread regarding this problem. But have to go and pick up my kids from school, so I don't have time to investigate today.

Now you are stuck with openssl, which is optional for mhttpd. If you only use mhttpd locally, you maybe don't need SSL support. In that case you can jus do

[midas/build] $ cmake -D NO_SSL=1 ..

To disable that. If you do need SSL, maybe you can try to install openssl11 via mac ports.

Thanks Stefan. 
If I run the compilation with the flag NO_SSL it works just fine. Still I think that Mhttpd is going to be important for us in the future as we may want to control the experiment remotely, so I will keep trying. But at least I 
can get started.

Thanks

Hi,
for some reason we occasionally get JSON errors in the browser when accessing MIDAS. It is then not possible to open a new window or tab, see attachment. The unexpected token is \0x6, so the acknowledge symbol.
If this happens, then all "alive sessions" keep being usable despite error messages, but show similar error messages:

Do you have any idea why db_get_values yields ACK or other control characters?

You are the first one reporting this error, so it must be due to your values in the ODB. Can you track it down to specific ODB contents? If so, can you post it so that I can reproduce your error?

Yes, there is a problem.

Traditionally, midas strings in ODB have no restriction on the content (I think even the '\0x0' char is permitted).

But web browser javascript strings are supposed to be valid unicode (UTF-16, if I read this right: https://tc39.es/ecma262/#sec-ecmascript-language-types-string-type).

The collision between the two happens when ODB values are json-encoded by midas, then json-decoded by the web browser.

The midas json encoder (mjson.h, mjson.cxx) encodes ODB strings according to JSON rules, but does not ensure that the result is valid UTF-8. (valid UTF-8 is not required, if I read the specs correctly http://www.ecma-
international.org/publications/files/ECMA-ST/ECMA-404.pdf and https://www.json.org/json-en.html)

The web browser json decoder requires valid UTF-8 and throws exceptions if it does not like something. Different browsers it slightly differently, so we have an error handler for this in the mjsonrpc results processor.

What does this mean in practice?

Now that MIDAS is very web oriented, MIDAS strings must be web browser friendly, too:

a) all ODB key names (subdirectory names, link names, etc) must be UTF-8 unicode, and this has been enforced by ODB for some time now.
b) all ODB string values must be valid UTF-8 unicode. This is not enforced right now.

Historically, it was okey to use ODB TID_STRING to store arbitrary binary data, but now, I think, we must deprecate this,
at least for any ODB entries that could be returned to a web browser (which means all of them, after we implement a fully
html+javascript odb editor). For storing binary data, arrays of TID_CHAR, TID_DWORD & co are probably a better match.

The MIDAS and ROOTANA json decoders (the same mjson.h, mjson.cxx) do not care about UTF-8, so ODB dumps
in JSON format are not affected by any of this. (But I am not sure about the JSON decoder in ROOT).

Bottom line:

I think db_validate() should check for invalid UTF-8 in ODB key names and in TID_STRING values
and at least warn the user. (I am not sure if invalid UTF-8 can be fixed automatically). db_create()
should reject key names that are not valid UTF-8 (it already does this, I think). db_set_value(TID_STRING) should
probably reject invalid UTF-8 strings, this needs to be discussed some more.

FYI, the mongoose616 branch now has support for using the mbedtls https library,
this library seems to build easily from sources and removes our dependency
on where/how/which openssl library is installed. I hope to have this included
in the next release of midas.
