digitalmars.D.learn - CP command used in the phobos windows makefile

Guys, where did you get the unix cp port from? I don't have it installed, so I
can't use "make install -fwin32.mak". I've also tried using the one that comes
with UnxTools from http://sourceforge.net/projects/unxutils/ , but that one
fails with:

cp.exe: cannot create regular file `\dmd2\windows\lib':
No such file or directory

Replacing cp with 'copy' doesn't work either, since copy uses a different
syntax.

I'm not seeing a CP binary in any of the DigitalMars tools.

green I just copy phobos.lib in src/phobos to windows\lib directory and rebuild my projects. (since phobos.lib includes druntime I don't think there is anything else you should do)

You know it'd be great if I could synchronize git with a build system.
I mean if I'm switching between branches I'd like to automatically
switch to a pre-compiled .lib file so I don't waste time recompiling a
branch which was already compiled.

msys used to have one, haven't used it in a while.

try this: (runs as a native win32 binary!!) - http://www.file-upload.net/download-3463821/cp.zip.html PS: It's taken form the GnuWin project on sourceforge: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/ I couldn't find a single download for cp, but since I have installed the whole project I've extracted the necessary files and made an upload :) °Matthias

Well that doesn't work:

D:\DMD\dmd2\src\phobos>make install -fwin32.mak
cp phobos.lib \dmd2\windows\lib
C:\GnuWin32\bin\cp.exe: cannot create regular file
`\\dmd2\\windows\\lib': No such file or directory

Having DIR defined as:
DIR=\dmd2

as a directory doesn't make sense either. I have a feeling make
install is either never used or whoever packs windows binaries
(Walter?) calls it via cygwin or some other shell. Or there's a CP
binary that I don't know about.

I'll just roll out a build script in D for myself so I can have some
way of quickly building and switching between branches. I'll make it
multithreaded to speed things up as well.

That is weird, this is the first place I've looked for the CP command and it wasn't there. Thanks, I'll give that a try!
