Hi, thank you to all for your availability.

I finally succeded in creating the libgpib.a file.

I tried to launch the package installation in Octave 4.0.0 and I received the following warnings:


>> pkg install instrument-control-0.3.1.tar.gz

configure: WARNING: gpib/ib.h: present but cannot be compiled

configure: WARNING: gpib/ib.h:     check for missing prerequisite headers?

configure: WARNING: gpib/ib.h: see the Autoconf documentation

configure: WARNING: gpib/ib.h:     section "Present But Cannot Be Compiled"

configure: WARNING: gpib/ib.h: proceeding with the compiler's result

For information about changes from previous versions of the instrument-control package, run 'news instrument-control'.


Is there anything wrong in the procedure I followed.

Thank you very much, waiting for your precious answer.

thank you for your availability.
Unfortunately I’m already using cygwin environment, but it doesn’t work.
The gpib folder exists and it has got inside the ib.h file.
Thank you.

Then in a terminal window what does the following command display?


if it is not set anything, you need to set it to the NI install directory
On mine that is C:\Program Files (x86)\National

How did you get ib.h installed ?, from output from the pkg install is indicating something isnt right with the file when checking if it can be used.

Running the install as:

pkg install -verbose instrument-control-0.3.1.tar.gz

May give an indication of whats wrong
