2.1.2 Compiler configuration

Linux compiler configuration

If you install additional software via a package manager such as apt or rpm, then the relevant environment variables will be configured automatically.

MacOS X compiler configuration

If you install additional software via a package manager such as fink or macports, then the relevant environment variables will be configured automatically.

Windows compiler configuration

If you install additional software, you might need to modify environment variables manually.

Windows command-line compiler configuration

If you would like to use the Command prompt version, check that the command-line compiling works:

     c:\nmake

You will see some version number and it should complain that no MAKEFILE was found and no target specified.

If you want to use DirectX SDK on the command-line verison, you may need to add an environment variable called DXSDK_DIR and modify your the INCLUDES and LIBRARY environment variables to include the corresponding directories in the DirectX SDK installation.
