I have finally managed to hack libshout and libmp3lame into
shape to compile and link on Win32/cygwin/mingw. Therefore
the Win32 port of SndKit and MusicKit via GNUstep can do
everything that the GNUstep/linux port can do (play and
record audio, plus all non-dsp MusicKit classes), except to
actually display anything using GUI objects. GNUstep does
not have a GUI backend on Windows.
Hallelujah! And it seems to be stable! Incredible that the
entire MK and SK now compile on MacOSX, Win32, and a variety
of other *nix platforms from a common codebase.
We've only had partial success in getting changes to the
libshout library incorporated into their CVS tree, though
the mp3lame people have been happy to do so for libmp3lame.
So I'll try to get both further sets of changes sent off to
the maintainers on Monday.
Meanwhile I'll try to find a way to make my changed source
code and/or Win32 binaries available in some other way
(perhaps on the SourceForge download area for the MK?). That
should greatly help anyone else trying to get the Win32 port
to work - and I have a set of instructions too.
NB the requisite SK and MK changes have been incorporated
into our CVS tree, so if you want them now you can update
from CVS, or wait for the next official release due "any
