THE COQ V8 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 coqide.exe
or coqtop.exe in the bin sub-directory of the installation
(C:\Program Files\Coq\bin 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).
See: http://caml.inria.fr
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- 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)
4- In a shell window, type successively
./configure
make world
make install
5- 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 :-)
Alternatively, it is now possible (and even recommended ...) to build
Windows executables of coq from Linux thanks to a mingw cross-compiler.
If interested, please contact us for more details.
