The following package are necessary in order to start compiling on Windows.
- TortoiseHG ( http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org)
- Necessary to checkout code from pysoy.org
- Python 3 ( http://python.org/download)
- Required by ./waf
- MinGW with MSys ( http://www.mingw.org)
- Compiler we will be using
Libsoy has many dependencies that are not trivial to compile on Windows. For your convenience there is a .zip containing prebuilt binaries for those dependencies. Consult the README file in that archive for instructions on installing them with MinGW.
Getting the Source
You will need to get the experimental branch of the libsoy Mercurial using a Mercurial client such as TortoiseHG.
Libsoy uses the ./waf utility to build the code. Open a MinGW shell and navigate to the directory where you checked out libsoy and execute the following commands:
./waf configure --check-c-compiler=gcc ./waf build
That's it! soy.h and soy.dll will be available in the build directory.
