New issue 2347: RPython "hello world" fails to compile with Visual C++ 2015 as the C compiler.
Compiling a simple "Hello, world" program written in RPython fails during the C->executable stage with an error related to a missing symbol, __pioinfo. Apparently, as of Visual Studio 2014 this symbol is now longer exported by the compiler, because it exposes internals in a way they don't like. From some googling around, it seems the same problem exists or has existed in Ruby and Perl implementations too.
The program compiles on my machine using Visual C++ 2008 as expected.
