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 Windows, then you're lost in the sources. Go up one directory, and read the main README file. So, you're on an angry fruit salad Windows system, aren't you ? With those so cute icons and an overflowed system tray ? Currently, libmikmod can be build under Windows with the Microsoft compiler, lcc-win32 and MinGW (I suppose that the Watcom compiler and Metrowerks Codewarrior could be used as well). You'll need the DirectX SDK (if not included with the compiler) to compile the DirectSound driver; version 5 or better is required. The standard Win32 SDK is enough for the winmm driver. Oh, I almost forgot: you need long filenames to compile libmikmod, but that should not be a problem nowadays. -- Instructions for Microsoft Compiler You might want to edit one of the files 'Makefile.dynamic' and 'Makefile.static' located in the 'win32' directory to suit your particular compiler setup. Then, in the 'win32' directory, run nmake -f Makefile.static to build a static library, or nmake -f Makefile.dynamic to build a DLL with its import library. If the build fails, I'd like to hear from you to correct the problem. Be warned that both Makefiles put their object files in the same directory. If you want to switch between the two makefiles, don't forget to do a make clean first: nmake -f Makefile.dynamic clean (or the same command with Makefile.static). To make your library ready to use, copy the file '..\include\mikmod.h' to your compiler include directory, and 'mikmod.lib` to your compiler library directory. If you built a DLL, you'll also have to put 'mikmod.dll' somewhere in your PATH. HTML documentation of the library, for programmers, is located in the doc directory. -- Instructions for lcc-win32 Use Makefile.lcc -- Instructions for MingGW Use Makefile.mingw >> 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.
