GetIconLocation ?

Has somebody ever used the Library function GetIconLocation?

The doc of NSDN seems wrong (3 outputs stated, and no input specifying
from which file the Icon is got?).

Let's see....

You could get the CRT_noglob.o source and hack it.

If you're using C++, take a look at 3.6.2/3 in the
standard. I suspect that's the best way to go,
because it uses a standard language feature.
I suppose this would work even if the rest of the
program is C.

"The gnu package" being libiconv's official home, so of course there
is a link to that page???

Not all of those are binary distributions.

This has indeed been sometimes a problem for me too, for this and
other packages. Something needs to be done, and I will gladly start by
dropping my binary "distribution" of libiconv and instead point to one
of the others. Probably the http://gettext.sourceforge.net/ one, as it
has a DLL (instead of a static archive), and with the same name as I
have used, and there thus won't be any change visible to the users of

Hmm, but libiconv's configure.in doesn't contain the magic
AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL line that I thought was necessary to enable DLL
builds? Plus there were also some other problems I can't remember
right now that, at the time I needed libiconv, cause me to do it the
easy way and use the provided MSVC Makefiles instead...

Or create your own version of crt1.c of the mingw runtime.

	Most often the case is something special about the actual configuration process, ie. 
modifications to autoconf script(s?), generated makefiles, etc.

	Those sorts of things are usually dependent on the distribution being used.  Some 
distributions do accommodate Mingw specifically.  Others can deal with Mingw development 
(build-wise) with little or no modifications "out-of-the-box".

	Even so, it is the actual generation/configuration process itself ("autoconf generated 
./configure" or 'makefile" generated doesn't really matter*...) that determines whether

Well It is coming along, the DEBIAN package puts the original sources
and a diff file, and the instructions on how to build all in one spot.
I hope that I will be producing results soon. But have alot of real
world stuff to do like you do as well.

Ok, so we have too many CVS versions, hopefully all kept in sync.  BTW, there
are two for mingw-runtime and w32api.

package distribution


Hi!

I would like to try MinGW to compile libgda (a data access library and
testing tools from gnome-db project) but the distribution package is 1 year
old. Is there a guide to install MinGW from the most recent tools packages?
(ie, which files to download, what order for installation, etc.)

Thanks,

Fernando

I'm prototyping a new distribution in my sandbox to be uploaded later this
week.

It will contain the latest releases found at http://sf.net/project/mingw under
the files menu.

gcc-3.2-core
binutils-2.13
mingw-2.2 (which isn't yet available, so you could use mingw-2.1).
w32api-2.0
gdb-5.1.1
make-3.79.1 (binary will be renamed to mingw32-make)

If you need a POSIX/Bourne environment then download the MSYS package.

Earnie.
