05222002 - The internal zlib is now always built (but only linked in if
needed). This is so "make dist" includes the sources in the
tarball. I wonder if there's way to get them included without
compiling them when they aren't needed.
05222002 - Fixed the build system to always package the complete source, not
just what we built for a given system, when doing a "make dist".
Updated INSTALL. Started writing BeOS platform code.
05212002 - Cleaned up some FIXMEs.
05202002 - Added .cvsignore files.
05162002 - Edward Rudd also caught an embarrassing screwup by me in

NOTE: THESE INSTRUCTIONS NEED TO BE UPDATED FOR THE NEW BUILD SYSTEM. THIS
AFFECTS UNIX, WIN32 AND MACOS!

Please bitch to Ryan (icculus@clutteredmind.org) until he updates this.

Please note that the win32 and macos support files are out of date, but
will be corrected shortly. --ryan.

@@ -21,61 +18,60 @@ The best documentation for the PhysicsFS API is physfs.h. It is VERY heavily
commented, and makes an excellent, in-depth reference to all the functions.


UNIX:

Edit "Makefile", and follow the instructions. The defaults are probably okay
for general purposes, but give it a once over to make sure. If you don't have
zLib on your system, you'll need to disable ZIP support.
UNIX and BeOS:
(If you got this code from CVS, run "./bootstrap" first.)

run "make"
Run ./configure --help and see what features can be optionally enabled or
disabled. "./configure" does its best to pick optimal defaults for your
platform.

That's it. The library will be sitting in a new directory called "bin".

Run "make install" to install the library for use on your system.
Run "make".
As root, run "make install".
If you get sick of the library, run "make uninstall" as root and it will
remove all traces of the library from the system paths.


WIN32:
Download http://icculus.org/physfs/downloads/physfs-win32-support.zip, and
unpack in the root of the source directory, preserving directory names. If
you did it correctly, there should be a directory named "zlib114" in the
same directory as "physfs.h". This archive has Visual C project files and
the code needed for zipfile support in PhysicsFS, since most Windows boxes
don't have zlib preinstalled.
If building with CygWin, follow the Unix instructions, above.

Otherwise, get http://icculus.org/physfs/downloads/physfs-win32-support.zip,
and unpack in the root of the source directory, preserving directory names. If
you did it correctly, there should be a file named "physfs.dsp" in the
same directory as "physfs.h". That zipfile has Visual C project files for
Visual Studio 6.0 and Visual Studio .NET. If you're using Visual C, point the
IDE at physfs.dsp, and build. If you're using any other compiler, send me a
patch when you get it working. :)

IMPORTANT: If you are using anything older than Visual Studio.NET, you
will _NEED_ to upgrade to the latest Platform SDK from Microsoft. It is a
free download: http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/platformsdk/sdkupdate/
Be sure to install _at least_ the Core SDK and the WMI SDK. I'm not sure if
this is needed (or usable for Cygwin). Even though you need these SDK updates,
the compiled PhysicsFS DLL should work on any win32 platform from Win95 and
WinNT 4.0 and later.
Be sure to install _at least_ the Core SDK and the WMI SDK. Even though you
need these SDK updates, the compiled PhysicsFS DLL should work on any win32
platform from Win95 and WinNT 4.0 and later. IF YOU ARE MISSING CONSTANTS
AND/OR THE PROJECT REFUSES TO LINK, YOUR PLATFORM SDK IS OUT OF DATE. Do _not_
complain to us. Suck it up and upgrade your libraries.

No one's tried building this for a WinCE (PocketPC) platform, but it may or
may not work. Patches are welcome.

After that, if building with CygWin, follow the Unix instructions, above.
(Which used to work, see caveat about Platform SDK above). If you're using
Visual C, point the IDE at physfs.dsp, and build. If you're using any other
compiler, send me a patch when you get it working. :)

If someone is willing to maintain prebuilt PhysicsFS DLLs, I'd like to hear
from you; send an email to icculus@clutteredmind.org.


MACOS 8/9:
Download http://icculus.org/physfs/downloads/mac_classic_support.sit and
unpack it in the root of the physfs folder. It should produce a folder
called "Mac Classic Support" that has CodeWarrior 6 project files and a
copy of zlib for zipfile support.
called "Mac Classic Support" that has CodeWarrior 6 project files.

If someone is willing to maintain prebuilt PhysicsFS Shared Libraries for
the Mac, I'd like to hear from you; send an email to icculus@clutteredmind.org.


OTHER PLATFORMS:
Many platforms might "just work" with the Unix Makefile (such as BeOS and
MacOS X), but have not been heavily tested, if tested at all. To implement a
new platform or archiver, please read the heavily-commented physfs_internal.h
Many platforms, such as Solaris and MacOS X, might "just work" with the Unix
autoconf tools. Some of these platforms are known to have worked at one time,
but have not been heavily tested, if tested at all. To implement a new
platform or archiver, please read the heavily-commented physfs_internal.h
and look in the platform/ and archiver/ directories for examples.
