Compiling in Cygwin
Hi guys, this is my first post.
I'm interested in modding an open-source turn based game called Advanced Strategic Command or ASC, but to do that I need bunch of libraries. Installing those libraries is very easy in linux, I know but the thing is I'm working with windows in which the building of the libraries is a bit more complex, as you probably know. One of those libraries is the ligsigc++, I'm using VC++ but havenīt been successful in building the libsigc++ in VC++. I considered making my life easier with Cygwin (a unix shell for windows) and simply executing ./Configure, Make. I's worked like a charm and the library dll it produced is named cygsigc-2.0-0.dll which made me wonder is compiling a library in cygwin to be linked with VC++ perfectly ok? That is is there any difference in compiling in cygwin and VC++?
