Re: autoconf


Perhaps you should try downloading the latest version of msysDTK (1.0.1)
instead?

[mini-FAQ/reminder]

Introduction
============
You receive this message because you are subscribed to the MinGW
mailing list. This is a reminder/mini-FAQ sent once a month. If 
you want to unsubscribe from the mingw-users mail list you can do 
so at http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/mingw-users.  
Have your password handy (if you can't find it, you'll be offered 
an option to have it mailed to you).

What is MinGW?
==============
MinGW stands for "Minimalist GNU for Windows" and is a development
package (as well as target) which allows you to compile software 
for "native" Windows 32-bit platforms.  Please visit our website 
http://www.mingw.org for more information.

Who authored MinGW? How is it maintained? What is its licensing?
================================================================
MinGW was created by Colin Peters and was placed by him into the 
public domain.  There is no centralized force behind MinGW - it is 
maintained by volunteers and its development directed by the user 
community.  MinGW uses free GNU C/C++ compiler, its core libraries
and headers (Win32 import libraries and header definitions) are in 
public domain and it uses the vendor-supplied runtime library, so
in short, you can use it to develop royalty-free software, either
open- or close-sourced.  For more comprehensive licensing terms,
please visit http://www.mingw.org/licensing.shtml

Can MinGW be used to compile GNU or OpenSource software?

MingW make 3.79

Greetings workers of the MingW-world..

Is it possible to force GNU make 3.79.1 (Mingw compiled)
to ignore casing of input files (file.c vs FILE.C) ? 

I have a project that I work on both from plain-DOS, DOS-box
and Windows console (CMD/4NT). Sometimes I prefer to run 
make from the console.

When I'm in plain DOS (or using DOS editors under Win) files 
are all created in uppercase (FAT fs), hence make doesn't 
understand my make rules when I'm back in the Win console. 
I must rename all files to lowercase before make (MingW) 
accepts them.

The djgpp version of GNU make doesn't suffer from this 
IMHO deficiency (after all Windows isn't Unix). 
Is there some MingW env-var I can use to fix this?

Gisle V.

Re: Re: sample GLUT program does not link


What exactly doesn't work? If you are talking about piping errors to "less",
what does happens when you try it? I assume you are using the MSYS shell,
because I was not talking about the Windows command prompt.

Re: install autoconf

The msysDTK has autoconf, automake, libtool and a view other things.

I'm working on upgrading to the newest versions of tools for this 
package.  I hope to have it completed soon.

RE: MingW and W32api questions

If there is such a list, I'm unaware of it, so unfortunately, most of
the programming I've done is by compile-and-see-if-it-errors-out.

The good news is that is if the function does not exist in the win32api,
if you search MSDN, you can find out what dll it's located in and
reference it.  As for defines that do not exist yet in the win32api, if
you do a Google search, more often than not, you will find what you are
looking for.
