The instructions how to build notepad++ yourself are somewhat minimalistic.
I presume that it's easy to build if you use visual studio cause a project file is provided.
But if you don't have visual studio for whatever reason it would be nice if there was some more information available about how to build notepad++ with mingw. What do we need and how do we do it. Now we are just told that it can be build with mingw but not exacly how.
A little more information about it would be great. Or maybe I can not find the insturction, in that case I hope somebody could give me some pointers to them.
for example can a configure file be included so we can build notepad++ with autoconf and automake...
A makefile for MinGW comes with the source package (in the "gcc" directory).
All you have to do is type "make" under this directory.
here's the updated makefile for v3.1 :
Thank you. Never came to mind that the makefile could be slightly outdated. (Should have thought of that)
I Still think that the build insructions included could be made a little clearer than they are at this time.
Any chance we could get a Dev-C++ project file. It's default compiler is MinGW there shouldn't be any compatibility problems. It's only a matter of getting all the options right. Unlike MinGW, Dev-C++ is a complete installable IDE.
