This is a port of GNU Libiconv 1.11 to MSDOS/DJGPP. 1.: DJGPP specific changes. ======================= There are no DJGPP specific changes. This package should configure and compile out-of-the-box. Please read the documentation to become familiar with this product. 2.: Installing the binary package. ============================== 2.1.: Copy the binary distribution into the top DJGPP installation directory and unzip the binary distribution running *ONE* of the following commands: unzip32 licv111b.zip or djtarx licv111b.zip or pkunzip -d licv111b.zip 3.: Building the binaries from sources. =================================== 3.1.: To build the binaries you will need the following binary packages: djdev203.zip, bsh204b.zip, gcc2952b.zip, bnu210b.zip, mak3791b.zip, fil316b.zip, shl112b.zip, txt20b.zip, txi40b.zip, grep24b.zip and sed302b.zip All this packages can be found in the v2gnu directory of any Simtel.NET mirror. You will need bsh204b.zip and *NOT* a prior version or the build will fail. The same applies to djdev203.zip. You *MUST* use the updated versions of fil316b.zip (date: 2000-05-30) and shl112b.zip (date: 2000-08-11). This updated versions have been recompiled with djdev203.zip and know about the "/dev/env" functionality introduced with djdev203.zip. All the other packages are the ones I have used to build the binaries from this sources. Previuos and/or later versions of this packages may do the job as well but I have not tested this. 3.2.: Create a temporary directory and copy the source package: licv111s.zip into the temporary directory. If you download the source distribution from one of the DJGPP archives, just unzip it preserving the directory structure, runnig ONE of the following commands: unzip32 licv111s.zip or djtarx licv111s.zip or pkunzip -d licv111s.zip Source distributions downloaded from one of the GNU FTP sites need some more work to unpack. First, you MUST use the `djtar' program to unzip the package. That's because some file names in the official distributions need to be changed to avoid problems on the various platforms supported by DJGPP. `djtar' can rename files on the fly given a file with name mappings. The distribution includes a file `djgpp/fnchange.lst' with the necessary mappings. So you need first to retrieve that file, and then invoke `djtar' to unpack the distribution. Here's how: djtar -x -p -o libiconv-1.7/djgpp/fnchange.lst libiconv-1.7.tar.gz > lst djtar -x -n lst libiconv-1.7.tar.gz (The name of the distribution archive and the top-level directory will be different for versions other than 1.7.) 3.3.: The package is preconfigured for djdev203. To build the products you should run the following command: make After the compilation has finished, you can check the products running the command: make check To install the products run the command: make install This will install the products (iconv.exe iconv.h localcharset.h libconv.a libcharset.a iconv.1 iconv.3 iconv_open.3 iconv_close.3) into your DJGPP installation tree. As usual, prefix is defined as "/dev/env/DJDIR". If you prefer to install into same other directory run the command: make install prefix=z:/some/other/dir Of course, you should replace "z:/some/other/dir" by an appropriate path that will meet your requeriments. 3.4.: If you need/want to reconfigure the package you will have to run the following commands: make distclean djgpp\config Please note that you *MUST* use the "distclean" option or the config.cache file will *NOT* be deleted. In this case you are *NOT* reconfiguring because the configuration informations is read from the cache file instead of being newly computed. To build the programs in a directory other than where the sources are, you must add the parameter that specifies the source directory, e.g: x:\src\gnu\libiconv.111\djgpp\config x:/src/gnu/libiconv.111 Lets assume you want to build the binaries in a directory placed on a different drive (z:\build in this case) from where the sources are, then you will run the following commands: z: md \build cd \build x:\src\gnu\libiconv.111\djgpp\config x:/src/gnu/libiconv.111 You *MUST* use forward slashes to specify the source directory. After having configured the package run the folowing commands to create the binaries and docs and install them: make make check make install Send suggestions and bug reports concerning the DJGPP port to comp.os.msdos.djgpp or email@example.com.
