Thanks for working on this. It's about time that we got a proper
build process for Windows worked out. I'll take a good look at
this myself, but meantime here are some quick responses.
1. The matfuncs.c file has several #include <libxslt/...>
commands, but the README file does not mention that this library is
necessary to compile gretl on Windows
This is a case where there are some additional dependencies for
building the documentation: you don't need libxslt to build gretl
2. The xsltInternals.h file has the #include <libxml/dict.h>
<libxml/xmlstring.h> preprocessor commands, but these files are not
included in the libxml library at
OK, I'll see about fixing that.
C:\gretl\extra\simple_client.c:24:31: gretl/libgretl.h: No such
file or directory
Line 24 reads #include <gretl/libgretl.h>
I can only find the libgretl.h file in the lib\src folder.
Shouldnt this line be changed to just #include "libgretl.h" or
am I doing something wrong?
"simple_client" is not part of gretl itself; it's a sample
program that is supposed to mimic a third party using libgretl.
So the idea is that when you're building simple_client, libgretl
is already installed on the local system, and pkg-config can pick
up the right path for the libgretl header files.
C:\gretl\gui2\about.c:22:19: build.h: No such file or directory
I cannot find any file named build.h in the current gretl
source, although I find a build.h file in an old source from
build.h is a generated file, created by the perl script
builddate.pl. It could easily be written manually, e.g.
waverley:~/src/build$ cat build.h
#define BUILD_DATE "build date 2009-03-06\n"
