THE COQ V8.2 SYSTEM
===================
This file contains remarks specific to the Windows port of Coq.
INSTALLATION.
=============
The Coq package for Windows comes with an auto-installer. It will
install Coq binaries and libraries under any directory you specify
(C:\Program Files\Coq is the default path). It also creates shortcuts
in the Windows menus. Alternatively, you can launch Coq using Coq.bat
and Coqide.bat in the installation directory (C:\Program Files\Coq by
default).
COMPILATION.
============
If you want to install Coq, you had better transfer the precompiled
distribution. If you really need to recompile under Windows, here
are some indications:
1- Install OCaml for Windows (MinGW port), preferably version 3.11.0.
See: http://caml.inria.fr
If you choose OCaml 3.11.0, you also need to install FlexDLL.
See: http://alain.frisch.fr/flexdll.html
As shell script really dislikes space character within file
names, we strongly advise you to install OCaml to a path not
containing spaces, like 'C:\OCaml'
2- Install a shell environment with at least:
- a C compiler (gcc),
- the GNU make utility
The Cygwin environment is well suited for compiling Coq
(official packages are made using Cygwin) See:
http://www.cygwin.com
3- If using OCaml version >= 3.10.0, you have to install Camlp5.
See http://pauillac.inria.fr/~ddr/camlp5/
4- In order to compile Coqide, you will need the LablGTK library
See: http://wwwfun.kurims.kyoto-u.ac.jp/soft/olabl/lablgtk.html
You also need to install the GTK libraries for Windows (see the
installation instruction for LablGTK)
5- In a shell window, type successively
./configure
make world
make install
6- Though not nescessary, you can find useful:
- Windows version of (X)Emacs: it is a powerful environment for
developpers with coloured syntax, modes for compilation and debug,
and many more. It is free. See: http://www.gnu.org/software.
- Windows subversion client (very useful if you have access to the Coq
archive).
Good luck :-)
