This sample uses the deprecated XPCOM plugin API and broken nsGetModule entry point and should be removed.
Created attachment 101429 [details] [diff] [review] patch v.1 to makefile This patch removes the sample from the build system.
The Sane plug-in should probably be removed on the same basis; is there another bug on that?
This would be unfortunate. Although, the Sane plugin uses wrong invocation technique which we no longer promote, it still is a very nice piece of code demonstrating how to use some Linux lib and write a very cool plugin. I think it will be wiser just to adapt it to the current NPAPI.
This Plugin does not even work any more, at least on Windows. To get it to be loaded you need to rewrite the version info in the generated .res file (adding mime type etc.) and copy the dll to both the "Components" and "Plugins" folder (probably indication of some other bug). If this plugin API is deprecated, which API should new plugins use? There is major confusion on the web site, no complete documentation and the (Windows version of the) SDK is incomplete/not working either.
I removed this at some point.
