LIBSMI NOTES FOR NATIVE WIN32 SUPPORT
@(#) $Id: README.win 8079 2008-04-17 18:12:48Z schoenw $
This directory contains some help to compile the libsmi and associated
tools on a Win32 platform (Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT) with the native
Microsoft Visual C++ compiler. The makefile has been tested with VC++
6.0, but later versions should work very well too.
An alternative GNUmakefile can be used with GNU make program. You
will need the GNU make "gmake.exe" for Win32 platform.
There is a separate file README.mingw which explains how the libsmi
package can be compiled on Win32 platforms using the mingw version
(1) Set MSVC version used in ./config.nmake. Check the compiler path
macro TOOLS32 in ./config.nmake for the specific msvc installation.
(2) To compile simply run
(3) and to install a
should do what you expect. The default path's are c:\smi\mibs\... for
the MIB-files and c:\smi\bin for the tools (smidump.exe, ...). The
global configuration file is expected to be in c:\smi\smi.conf.
Alternative build with GNU make
GNU make uses GNUmakefile provided in this directory.
(1) Make sure the compiler (cl.exe) is in PATH
(2) To build simply run:
If you grabbed the CVS version and some files seems to be missing:
You may generate these files on another platform (Linux seems to work
fine) by running:
cd libsmi ## the sources from the CVS archive
./autogen.sh ## generates configure script an runs it
make errormacros.h parser-smi.c parser-sming.c \
scanner-smi.c scanner-sming.c smi.h
- The 64 bit integer types (unsigned and signed) are simply replaced
by their 64bit _int64 msvc counterparts. They work ok. see related
- The compiler path in ./config.nmake is hardwired (TOOLS32)
- The installation directories are hardwired in config.h.in
- Scanner and parser C files, errormacros.h and smi.h have been created
within a Unix environment and integrated with the distribution. If
you want to re-build them on a windows system you can use cygwin.
- The default SMIPATH separator character is the Windows style `;' and
not the Unix style `:'. It can be changed using the
--with-pathseparator=C configure option.
