Compiling Under Windows
Downloading the Necessary Components
You will have to download the following:
Development tools - This is a complete package that includes all tools necessary, including
gcc, make, and wxWidgets.
TerraIM source code - Get the zipped source code of the
most recent release here or follow the
instructions to download the source for the latest development version.
Installing the Packages
Run "MingW_wxWidgets.exe". It is a self-extracting archive. When asked where the files should be extracted, select C:\.
Then unzip the TerraIM source code in an arbitrary directory. For further examples, we will assume the source code was extracted
to C:\dev and is thus located at C:\dev\TerraIM_x.x_source\terraim\src (where x.x is the TerraIM version number).
Now you will have to add C:\mingw\bin to your PATH. Under Windows XP, Go to Control Panel->System->Advanced->Environment Variables.
Now, under "System variables" scroll down until you encounter a variable named "Path". Click "Edit" and in the "Variable Value" box,
add "c:\mingw\bin;" to the beginning (without the quotes).
Compiling the Source
Open a DOS command prompt by going to Start->Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt. Now, change the directory to the directory where
the TerraIM source is by typing "cd C:\dev\TerraIM_x.x_source\terraim\src". Once you are in the TerraIM source directory, execute
the command "make" and TerraIM should finish compiling in a few minutes.
