Hello folks ! This is libmikmod, version 3.2.0-beta1, a portable sound library for Unix. Check out the file 'NEWS' for more history information. >> BUILDING LIBMIKMOD --------------------- - If you're not building libmikmod for OS/2, then you're lost in the sources. Go up one directory, and read the main README file. So you're on a good old OS/2 system, aren't you ? With a customized Object Desktop or some equivalent tool collection ? I hope you've installed REXX support during the system installation. If you didn't, you lose. Run 'selective install' from the system setup folder, install REXX support, check it works, and come back here. Currently, libmikmod can be build under OS/2 only with the emx compiler or the Watcom compiler. Borland C lacks a 64-bit integer type and can't be used. You'll need the MMPM/2 toolkit (included in all the Warp toolkits) to compile the MMPM/2 driver. The Warp 4 toolkit is required if you want to build the DART driver, too. Oh, I almost forgot: you need long filenames to compile libmikmod, so you'll have to compile it on an HPFS drive, or an ext2fs drive, or a network drive where you can use decent-size filenames. In this directory, run configure You will then be asked some questions. First, you'll have to choose your compiler. If you choose emx, you can either build a static library, or a DLL with an import library. Then, you will be asked if you want to build a debug version; this option is mainly intended for the libmikmod developers, so you should answer "N" here. The next step is the driver selection. You'll be asked if you want the MMPM/2 and DART drivers. Since DART is not available on OS/2 older than Warp 4, the MMPM/2 driver is recommended for pre-Warp 4 systems. Otherwise, the DART driver is preferable, but you can include both to be sure your libmikmod library will work on every 32 bit version of OS/2. After the configuration has finished and the Makefiles are created, just run make and you'll get your libmikmod library in the libmikmod directory. If the build fails, I'd like to hear from you to correct the problem. To make you library ready to use, copy the file '..\include\mikmod.h' to your compiler include directory, and '..\libmikmod\mikmod.lib` to your compiler library directory. If you built a DLL, put the DLL (..\libmikmod\mikmod.dll) in a directory which appears in your LIBPATH. HTML documentation of the library, for programmers, is located in the doc directory. >> THANKS --------- I would like to thank everyone who contributed to libmikmod. Their names are in the AUTHORS file for the significative contributions, but some other names can be found in the NEWS file. Thanks a lot ! Keeping libmikmod alive wouldn't be much fun without you. >> LICENSE ---------- The libmikmod sound library is covered by the GNU Library General Public License as published by the Free Software Fundation (you'll find it in the file COPYING.LIB); either version 2 of the licence, or (at your option) any later version.
