    Default Recompiling on Windows with BCC -- help

    I have a Linux ANSI C package -- an app which #include-s to a lot of header files and c files as dependencies -- I have a makefile which allows me to just type make pan and it will compile everything I need using GCC and link and then give me the executable which I want.

    This works beautifully on Linux.

    I need to recompile now on Windows. I did successfully complete that too using Cygwin make but with that port I need to include the cygwin1.dll whose size is relatively big for download for people with slow connections here in India.

    So I would like to compile on Windows without cygwin dll dependency.

    I have the Borland C++ Build 5.5 Free Command Line Tools, but since it does not handle make I do not know what procedure I should use to compile my program. If I simply say compile this program, will it automatically compile the c files that the program accesses via the header files?

    Please help me -- I have attached the makefile as a txt (I'm surprised Qtcenter.org declared the plain makefile without extension as an invalid file).

    Maybe you should try MinGW? It also requires a DLL, but a small one.

    It's impossible with the current version of vBulletin.

    MinGW does not require a DLL, but its output was much smaller than the Cygwin output. (65% reduction in zip-compressed size.) Thanks for the tip, Jacek!
