Good day, My Problem I'm attempting to create a Program on a Linux System that will be able to be run on a Windows System. This program uses the CURSES feature and I'm having problems in generating a successfull load Module.
My Environment Development Computer Pentium 4 Linux 2.4.18 Caldera 2.3 Mingw 1.1 PDCurses 2.4 Production Computer Compaq i486 Windows 95 Processing I generated MINGW as a Cross Compiler for creating Windows formated Object Modules using the procedure described by Reinhard Jessich at his site members.telering.at/jessich/mingw. The pdcurses-mingw32-libs.tar.gz file that I installed had two versions of the Library in it: libcurses.a libpdcurses.a Errors When I use Mingw to create a Load modules and specify -lpdcurses, it assembles fine but when I bring it over to the Windows System to run it, I get the following message: A required DLL file, PDCURSES.DLL was not found. I cannot find any mention on the Net on where I can get a copy of this DLL or how I can create it. I saw a posting from someone saying that Mingw supplied two PDC libraries, one called libpdcurses for use with Dynamic Linking and another called libpdcurses_s.a for Static linking. I assume that if I used a static library, I wouldn't get the problem of the missing PDCURSES.DLL file. I cannnot find any mention on the Net on where I can get this Static Library. It was not part of the files from Mingw. I thought that perhapes I should try using the libcurses.a library since it might be the static library. When I did an assembly using that one, I received a number of the followng messages: undefined references to __imp_iob. Summary My questions to everyone reading this note are the following: 1. Can someone tell me where I can find a copy of the PDCURSES.DLL file or how it can be created? 2. Can someone tell me how I can get a copy of the libpdcurses_s.a file if that is the library to be used to do static compiles? 3. Can anyone tell me how to get around the problem of the undefined references to __imp_iob? Any assistance in helping me to get PDCurses to run with Mingw will be greatly appreciated. Yours truly, Frank Krauss
