I have been working on the BID tutorial in writing the
hiworld example. I was able to complete the exercise

I just found one compilation error, in "4.3 Client
helper library", where it said no member ipc_error for
env. Declaration is as follows:

  CORBA_Environment env = dice_default_environment;

One usage in the example is:

  return -env.ipc_error;

I checked l4/tool/dice/include/dice/dice-corba-types.h
and for l4x2 version, ipc_error is declared inside a
_p union. Hence, the usage of:


worked fine. Is that correct?

I tested hiclient and hiserver replacing demo-drops
images with my compiled ones, and it worked fine.

My documentation and the source code can be viewed
