I read the contributing guidelines
page and was reading octave's sources trying to figure out how things are connected and have a few ideas to implement, mainly on libgui. Did that on octave
's source code and saw my changes on the Linux build (even submitted a small patch). Then I proceeded to clone and build mxe-octave
to do the same on a Windows build, but I could not find the sources.
There are two folders here:
Both build fine. I feel dumb asking this: where are the sources for mxe-octave?
The folder ~/mxe-octave/src contains lots of .mk files, whereas ~/octave/libgui/src/ (for example) contains the GUI source files. I cannot find any of them on the mxe-octave subfolders. What I am missing? How can I have a mxe-octave folder where I can perform the cicle "change sources --> run make --> test -->", like I can do on the native octave build? I'm not used to mercurial, still have to learn.
Perhaps someone is already doing Windows/Linux development and can shed some light here. :)
Thanks in advance.
