Has anyone released standalone binaries for Windows and Linux? #101

Hi all – I saw all the different programming language implementations on the xxHash website. Is anyone posting binaries for standalone programs, presumably a CLI? I'm most interested in programs I could run on Windows 10, newer releases of Fedora/RHEL, and Alpine.

All I've seen so far are some online xxHash sites, but I'd rather run local.

Any tips on which library implementations would be easiest to compile into a program on my own? Maybe the Go versions?

Are you able to compile source code using make ?

No, that just yields a long error message, as usual. (I didn't know it was even an option in this case – I thought xxHash was just a library.) I can rarely get make/gcc to work on Windows. In this case the error is:

C:\Tools\xxHash-dev> C:\MinGW_64_6.3.0_POSIX_SJLJ\bin\mingw32-make.exe
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, uname, ...) failed.

Makefile:56: recipe for target 'xxhsum' failed

The only make executable I can find in the MinGW distro I downloaded is mingw32-make.exe, as seen above.

Windows is indeed a difficult platform for make.
I tend to use msys2 environment, which works best for me.
It also allows installation on MinGW64 via pacman.

Alternatively, if you like Visual, you just have to create a console application, include xxhash.c and xxhsum.c, and it should produce the desired binary.

Your initial question also referred to Fedora/RHEL, and Alpine, which should work well with Makefile.
