Hi, I'm going to try to compile BDB 4.1.25 with DMC++. Unfortunately the
Win32 build stuff is for VC. Is there a fast way to use VC workspace and
project files? It looks like BDB use's a quite complex setup and I would
like to avoid to reverse engineer it.

If you have MSVC, load up the project and export it to a makefile. Then adapt it from nmake to dmc's make syntax. Or use the far better GNU make. Gisle V.

Well, if I would have MSVC I would just use it ;-)) to compile the stuff. Robert

If i'm not mistaken, you get it at www.bloodshed.net
you need "5 beta", which actually is 4.9.x.x - take the latest one.

Hi, no I don't knew it. Thanks for the tip. BTW: Is DMC++ compatible with the GDB for Windows?

I had a look at the MingW stuff some time ago but never tried it in deep. IIRC it uses the MS runtime stuff instead of Cygwin as most other GNU stuff is based on, right? Is it worth having a look? Robert

Urgh... IIRC they expect different debug data format... [browsing documentation...] It might just a s well be an old rumor.

Fist, it doesn't use a UNIX-compatible runtime, that's right, which is=20 the basic idea of it. The idea is the "try to get complete native=20 windows stanards compatibility", so it even has library and object=20 formats compatible with MSVC. Cygwin IIRC isn't compatible, and=20 requieres a 1-meg DLL (POSIX emulator) to be redistributed. The downside = is that you can't compile some UNIX utilities with it. The earlier versions of MingW did use msvcrt.dll IIRC, but there is a=20 project out there to re-implement it from scratch. As i compiled=20 something with MingW 2.0.0 (GCC 3.2-based), it was already independant=20 of MS DLL. Besides, people report that past the version 3.0 of GCC, generated code=20 quality has improved greatly and has become better than that of MSVC.=20 It's nothing special, just terse and "no-nonsense", which is already=20 very hard to achieve, especially in such a complex, multi-headed beast.=20 [it's a real woder it works at all.] It does a great number of=20 representation conversions and wastes tons of time though... -i.

Ok, that's for the command line stuff. I'm searching for a tool to avoid to create the make-file strucutre and content myself. Anyway, I'm going to write one as this just needs some parsing. I'll let you know. Robert
