Ok, I give up; I knew that linux has 'make' and 'make install' all over the
place, but, until this afternoon,
I never knew that dos has it. While attempting to install some parts of HX
and GEM to djgpp, I was struck
by this: "use 'make' to configure the includes(headers) and libraries, and
use 'make install' to install them
in the djgpp". Never heard of 'make' in dos; went to dosbox(XP) and freedos,
typed 'make' and was returned
"make [option] [target]". lovely. Did make -help, and got a list of options,
none of them called 'install'.
Typing 'make install -help', got the same thing, with 'install' treated as a
bogus argument. I cannot fathom
the commandline syntax here; does 'target' refer to the djgpp includes and
libraries I guess I'm trying
to enrich? Then where does the 'source' go on the commandline? Is the source
called a 'makefile'?
Then, amazingly, when trying to google this up, nobody has this
info(instead:"here are some of the most
common dos commands"). *come ON*, what gives here???-kurt<wb2...@gmail.com>.
