# running configure

To avoid autotool confusion, we recommend running the bootstrap 
in your cygwin environment before beginning the build.

To build for Windows Visual C++, configure with CXX=cl CC=cl.

# setup the compiler for cygwin

For the compilation under cygwin using VC++, you have to make sure that 
the PATH contains the path to the installation of Visual Studio.  
The safest way to do this, is to add VC to your Cygwin.bat file.  
Since it is possible to have several different versions of VC on the same 
machine, we recommend keeping a generic Cygwin.bat and creating special 
CygwinXXX.bat file for each compiler you want to use.  

Here is an example for VC9:

   @echo off

   @call "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat"
   @set PATH=%PATH%;C:\cygwin\bin

   chdir C:\cygwin\bin

   bash --login -i

Two lines, "@call..." and "@set...", have been added to the default Cygwin.bat.

# building executables

When building your own exectuables, we recommend using the Visual C++ command 
shell, found under All Programs -> Visual C++ XXX -> Visual Studio Tools, 
which will have the Visual C++ environment properly established.
You will need to use the same compiler flags as used by

Compile an object file:
cl /EHsc /MD /GR /nologo /c \
   /IC:\cygwin\home\garren\lcg\hepmc\config\vc9\include \

Build an executable:
cl /Feexample.exe example_UsingIterators.obj \

# setting the path explicitly for VC 7.1

For the compilation under cygwin using VC 7.1 (Version 13.10.3077)
you have to make sure that the PATH contains the path to the
installation of Visual Studio .NET 2003.  This example also adds 
CLHEP to the path.  CLHEP is not required, but you may need it for your 
own purposes:

export VSPATH="/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003"

export PATH="/cygdrive/c/WINNT/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v1.1.4322":${PATH}

export PATH="${VSPATH}/SDK/v1.1/bin":${PATH}
export PATH="${VSPATH}/Common7/Tools/bin":${PATH}
export PATH="${VSPATH}/Common7/Tools/bin/prerelease":${PATH}
export PATH="${VSPATH}/Common7/Tools/":${PATH}

export PATH="${VSPATH}/Vc7/bin":${PATH}
export PATH="${VSPATH}/Common7/IDE":${PATH}

The compiler also needs the following variables set up (and 
as these are interpreted by the compiler, they have to be in 

export INCLUDE="C:/cygwin/home/clhep/;c:/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003/Vc7/include;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\SDK\v1.1\include"
export LIB="C:/cygwin/home/clhep/;c:/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003/Vc7/lib;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\SDK\v1.1\Lib"

Notice that CLHEP needs to be defined in LIB and INCLUDE.
You may have to adapt to your installation path, if different.
