gettext and iconv binaries for Windows.

Ready-to-use binaries

If you don't want to waste your time or if you don't know much about compiling and virtual machines,
see mlocati.github.io/articles/gettext-iconv-windows.html.

Do you want to build binaries on your own?

Compilation

I used Ubuntu 16.04 LTS under VirtualBox).

Get the compile-iconv-gettext-windows.sh and the patches directory (they must reside in the same directory).

Run the compile-iconv-gettext-windows.sh script to build the Windows binary files.

Creating the setup files

I used a Windows machine (a physical Windows 10 64 bit) with Inno Setup (I used version 5.5.9-unicode).


Steps to compile (to be done under Linux):

  • Run the compile-iconv-gettext-windows.sh script (the patches directory must be in the same directory as this script)
  • following the instructions of the script you'll able to build the Windows executables

Steps to generate the setup files (to be done under Windows):

If you want to build a setup to install these executables and automatically add them to the environmental path:

  • take a copy of the full repository gettext-iconv-windows
  • under the folder containing the repository content, create a folder compiled and copy under that directory the out-… folder that you have under Linux
  • launch the build-setup.vbs script
