make not working in cygwin!


hi!

hi!

1)I installed the CUnit framework which is a .tar.gz file from the bash shell in cygwin.
./congigure-works
make gives me an error saying
cd . && autoheader
/bin/sh : autoheader:command not found
make:*** [config.h.in]Error 127.
make install works
make clean works

I am not able to compile but install works
I do not know if it is installed and as to where it is installed

when i checked it gives me a list of header files and also the lib files.
I do not know as to why the make command is not working in cygwin.
When i go to the bin directory it shows the make command.

Help would be greatly appreciated
regards
Mahesh

The error is saying it couldn't find the autoheader command. Either add it to your PATH variable or amend you command line as shown below:

Code:
cd . && ./autoheader

The command 'autoheader' is provided by "autoconf"

You will also need "automake".

and install ALL the dev tool packages from the cygwin gui installer tool
AND ad ALL the paths to your MS system path

gcc dev and like
there should be a development package ( like there is with MinGW )

thanks!

hi!

Guys thank you very much for the reply.
i was able to get it working.

I was able to install the CUnit framework using cygwin.
But when i try "man cunit" it says that there is no manual entry for cunit.
I would like to know what this means?

thanks
Mahesh

# 5 : man page ( + documentation )

man CUnit
( upper case C and U ).
