Hi T.Wtsing.

You can use MinGW or CigWin in order to get the environment of linux to use Configure, Make and Make Install steps. This is the only solution, I know so far, to build linux projects containing makefiles on windows with GCC or G++. You can google how to get MinGW or CigWin.

The other tool that might also help you is NMAKE tool for windows. Remember !!! It uses CL compiler.

"CodeBlocks" is a cross platform compiler that might also help you. I haven't worked much on it but i'm sure it contains option to use makefile to build a project.

Let me know what option works out for you.

Dear all,
I often need to build on winxp some projects developed on linux.Usually along with the srcs are some direction files like,install,,install-sh etc.I'm a novice to the "make".and know no much more than going to the top directory of the codes and run make,make install and such.can anyone tell me:
Is "make" able to build any c,c++ code in winxp?
why some codes cannot be built although have writen correct makefile?
thanks very much!
