Subject: pspp build on windows
I'm using pspp and I needed to know how can I build pspp sources on windows
and for windows. I couldn't find any way to do that on windows.
Could you help me please?
Best regards

The answer is not as easy as it looks nor is your question as clear as it looks. To give you a quick answer:

You could use cygwin and mingw for porting a gnu source to MSWindows.
At least the last can be used on MSWindows and on GNU/Linux which makes it possible to build on and for MSWindows. The cygwin or mingw installation should contain all the prerequisites needed for pspp. You can find these requisites in the docs or ./configure will tell you what it is missing.
Lucky enough the source of pspp can be build without chances so that makes it relative easy.

For instance on you can find the script which I use to build PSPP4 Windows on you can find the script I used to install my computer with the mingw environment.

Have fun
