It is necessary to edit the Makefile if you want to install the program into a different location, or on some systems, to set an alternative path for the man page. Dependencies: Sudoku depends on curses library. For Windows the win32 folder contains the necessary source files. On Linux, the courses library is needed. Home page: http://invisible-island.net/ncurses/ncurses.html Currently it can be 'apt-get install'-ed as libncurses5 or libncurses5-dev. Other possible way of getting it is to install the CDK. CDK stands for "Curses Development Kit", and CDK sits on top of the curses library. This package contains the header files and development libraries for the CDK library. (Home page: http://invisible-island.net/cdk/) Under Minix it is recommended that /etc/termcap be edited to add 'bell' capability (see termcap(5)). This can be done by adding a record for 'bl' in the minix console entry: mx|minix|minix console:\ :am:xn:bs:\ :co#80:li#25:\ :bl=^G:\ <<<< ADD THIS :is=\E[0m:\ :cd=\E[0J:cl=\E[H\E[0J:\ [etc...] ** Sudoku Installation Notes (Windows) The source distribution provides Microsoft Visual Studio (v6) project files, along with a simple NMAKE makefile suitable for the Microsoft compilers. The distribution does not include makefiles for other compilers (e.g. Borland, Open Watcom, etc...), but you should have no difficulty in using these compilers. The Microsoft Visual Studio files are contained in the VC6 subdirectory, and the workspace file is VC6\sudoku.dsw. Open the workspace, and compile the project. There is an updated workspace in the VC2012 directory, and another makefile in MinGW folder for compiling with MinGW. Alternatively, from the command line, enter: > nmake /f Makefile.msc to build the program. Note that there is no install script for the Windows distribution, and the program is configured to search for the template file, at runtime, in the current working directory of the process.
