Updated: Apr 2007 Compiling tbaMUD under Microsoft Windows
There are a number of different compilers available for Microsoft Windows that can be used to compile tbaMUD. Each compiler works differently, so each compiler has a different set of instructions.
We currently have instructions for using the following compilers:
Cygnus CYGWIN (Formerly Cygnus GNU-Win32). This is a FREE compiler for Microsoft Windows! If you don’t own a compiler, you can just download this one off the net and get tbaMUD up and running in no time. Read the file README.CYGWIN.
Microsoft Visual C++ version 4.x – read the file README.MSVC4.
Microsoft Visual C++ version 5.x – read the file README.MSVC5.
Microsoft Visual C++ version 6.x – read the file README.MSVC6.
Microsoft Visual C++ version 8.x – read the file README.MSVC8. This is also called Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and the express edition is free and can be downloaded from Microsoft.
Borland C++ – read the file README.BORLAND
Watcom C++ v.11 – read the file README.WATCOM
It should be possible to compile tbaMUD using other compilers that are not listed here, or other versions of these compilers – as long as they support long filenames, etc. However, we don’t have instructions handy for those compilers. Feel free to submit your own.
Have fun! For help, check out http://www.cwg.lazuras.org
