First of all I suppose I should say this process is a bit foreign to me
and I have little previous experience with makefiles and the like.
I've had a look around to make sure I'm not missing something totally
Anyway, this is my first time attempting to use mysql++ and have
downloaded the 2.0.5 release for use with Visual C++ 2005 Express Beta 2.
I was initially getting the %BUILDSYS problems with using "makemake vc",
but I edited makemake with the changes posted by Warren and the
Makefiles were created, which was the following for the project root:
@cmd /c mkbindirs.bat
cd lib && $(MAKE) BIN_DIR=debug all example_setup
cd lib && $(MAKE) BIN_DIR=release
cd examples && $(MAKE)
@cmd /c install.bat vc
clean debug release:
cd lib && $(MAKE) $@
cd examples && $(MAKE) $@
I got a copy of gnu make, but when I try to run it (assuming I just have
to use "make", correct?) I get the following
"makefile:2: *** missing separator. Stop."
I've read that this is generally a whitespace vs tab issue on line 2,
but as I've said I'm not too familiar with the correct syntax here, so
I'm not sure if there is a problem with that Makefile or just my attempt
to use it.
I then went and tried to manually execute the commands listed, but got
further (different) errors down the line with the lib makefile. But
before I ask about them I wanted to be sure they weren't a result of not
running this step correctly.
So am I doing something obviously stupid?
Thanks for any help
