Unsupported Platforms

This library includes no-op support for unsupported platforms. That is, it will build on all platforms but always fail on unsupported platforms.

  1. You can turn this off by disabling the default unsupported feature. If you do so, this library will fail to compile on unsupported platforms.
  2. Alternatively, you can detect unsupported platforms at runtime by checking the xattr::SUPPORTED_PLATFORM boolean.
