Vous avez juste besoin de dire configure à ce sujet à l'aide de la --target option, comme suit:--target = x86_64-w64-mingw32De cette façon, make sera en invoquant les outils appropriés. When I need to debug in depth, I will build projects for visual studio, but I mostly just use the command promt with makefiles and sublime. You clearly know what you’re dealing with, so why waste your intellect just posting videos to your blog when you could be providing us with something insightful to read? Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: You are commenting using your WordPress.com account. Change ). You just need to tell configure about it using the --target option, like so: --target=x86_64-w64-mingw32 That way, make will be invoking the appropriate tools. Would you recommend VS Code over VS or any other setup for that matter? Cygwin applications by principle are not considered a “Native Win32 application” because it relies on the Cygwin® POSIX Emulation DLL or cygwin1.dll for Posix functions and does not use win32 functions directly. MSYS is a building environment to provide some simple POSIX environment support. Just install mingw through msys2's pacman and put msys64/mingw32/bin and msys64/usr/bin in your PATH, and you are good to go. Maybe that's the solution. Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account. Honestly, it appears as if you relied on the video to drive your point home. Managing libraries is really convenient. ( Log Out /  Beyond that, I doubt that I'd have many unique requirements. Cygwin is not strictly POSIX. Its a command prompt where users  run “./configure” then “make” to build programs. The .a or .lib file and/or .dll.a file have to be different for MinGW and MSVC. Thanks for the response, i get your point. You can use makefiles and compile in the command promt. Sorry about the horrible phrasing of this question by the way, i'm a bit frustrated here = p. Not on Windows right now so I can't test it but maybe the Linux subsystem would work. Bien que vous pourriez envisager d'utiliser VS sur Windows, GCC sur Linux / Unices. http://www.mingw.org/wiki/HOWTO_Specify_the_Location_of_External_Libraries_for_use_with_MinGW#comment-278. Users looking for such functionality should look to Cygwin. Cygwin's MinGW-w64 compiler is a cross-compiler, because it's hosted on Cygwin but targeting MinGW-w64.

Sometimes its just better all around to work in an IDE, for example for Java you're better off using IntelliJ or Eclipse instead of Vim or a text editor, because its a verbose language. Différences entre MSYS2 et Cygwin (2) Traditionnellement, MSYS bash était considéré comme inférieur à Cygwin bash. July 19th, 2017. The problem is there’s no /usr directory psychically. If you are compiling your program with MinGW, then the generated binaries can be distributed without any dependencies on external DLL. It's essentially native gcc for windows, no environments or vms. for Windows, then it is better to use the one from MSVC or MinGW ( libusb-1.0.dll) and not Cygwin (cygusb-1.0.dll). Obviously Unix is my preference, but if I can't have Unix than I'd rather have Unix tools on the OS I'm being forced to use than a Unix sandbox will always be less than a real Linux/BSD install but fails to integrate properly with the OS I'm using by necessity. On the other hand, MinGW's priorities are simplicity and performance. In class we've used Visual studio enterprise 2017. It uses its own package management system, commonly called setup.exe. That's my vote. Cygwin produces executables that run only on Cygwin, MinGW produces native executables that do not have dependencies apart from what Windows already provides. Je suis en train de lancer des commandes Unix sur le bash.exe et mintty.exe, trouvé dans Cygwin64/bin (par exemple, usr/bin/bash.exe). MSYS(in MingGW) by itself does not contain a compiler or a C library, therefore does not give the ability to magically port UNIX programs over to Windows nor does it provide any UNIX specific functionality like case-sensitive filenames. You could theoretically install Ubuntu from the Microsoft Store and use that for Compilation of CMake Projects.You could also theoretically use Clang( ships with VS now) and MSVC from the same project without any major efforts for CMake projects. Cygwin Bash.exe vs mintty.exe. MinGW-w64 is a build env for 64bit and/or 32bit Windows application. Off course they are not the same but which one to prefer when is a big challenge. Opposed to Cygwin, MinGW (minimalist GNU for Windows) is a native port of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection). Cygwin applications by principle are not considered a “Native Win32 application” because it relies on the Cygwin® POSIX Emulation DLL or cygwin1.dll for Posix functions and does not use win32 functions directly. Depends on what you mean by "editor". Was trying to build a simple gui for a Mandelbrot thing, and couldn't get it to work with fltk (the only gui i know at this point), so i decided to try another gui library, but i have been struggling with getting wxwidgets or SFML to work with Cygwin. The reason i went away from VS in the first place is that i was afraid i was doing myself a disservice by "hiding" behind an IDE (as i'm still a beginner). Then I've set up Xfce 4. Been thinking that it may be easier to just go back to VS, but the thing is that i've fell in love with Sublime, and much prefer it as a text editor to VS. ( Log Out /  That said, I'm still having a problem with mysys2, see last paragraph here, if you have any notion of how to actually make those work :). WSL is a real Linux kernel built on a lightweight VM. You don't think this is the case? And simply do a g++ file.cxxMaybe if you are interested, you could use CMake projects as well and things would work the same as they do on Linux! MinGW - Minimalist GNU for Windows A native Windows port of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) Brought to you by: cstrauss , earnie , gressett , keithmarshall Author Topic: About Free Pascal and MinGW (or cygwin) (Read 4582 times) jmpessoa. Using Cygwin your applications will have POSIX substrate with pros and cons. Usually in linux /usr/local/lib is the default library search path. If you must have gui then virtualbox with Ubuntu else Docker. By default, code compiled in MinGW’s GCC will compile to a native Windows X86 target, including.exe and.dll files, though you could also cross-compile with the right settings, since you are basically using the GNU compiler tools suite. You should be able to install libraries and toolchains through its package manager. I'm trying with MinGW and Cmake now, and i'm making at least some progress, but it's still hard. Does anybody have any tips for making my setup a bit easier when it comes to installing libraries etc, and still be able to use Sublime? Is VS Code an IDE though, i thought that was just an editor? Change ), You are commenting using your Facebook account. Have you thought about installing Ubuntu (e.g. Cygwin est MinGW-w64 compilateur est un cross-compilateur, car il est hébergé sur Cygwin, mais le ciblage de MinGW-w64. MinGW on the other hand, provides functions supplied by the Win32 API. Again, MinGW .a file should be good fro Cygwin users as well.-- Everything seems to work, even faster than in my manjaro linux boot, except their pacman package is weird when downloading packages, it will throw errors of "connection to mirror too slow" even tho I'm downloading at 10Mbps. I mostly use Cygwin for standard *nix command-line tools, so I'm sure either would work, but a good terminal (when Cygwin got Mintty, it was a revelation) is a must. IN addition to providing access to the Windows API, it also provides its own implementations of some Microsoft C … MinGW - Minimalist GNU for Windows A native Windows port of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) Brought to you by: cstrauss , earnie , gressett , keithmarshall If you want POSIX application deployment on this platform, please consider Cygwin instead. Change ), You are commenting using your Google account. Switch to msys2 and just use windows, no environments or extra layers needed. While porting applications under MinGW, functions not native to Win32 such as fork(), mmap() or ioctl() will need to be reimplemented into Win32 equivalents for the application to function properly. I've put debian, because it is really the minimal WSL install available and you can choose packages as you go. Good news is that pacman saves the buffer of what's already been downloaded, so you just call the packages installations repeatedly until it finishes them. Best regards, Yongwei -- Wu Yongwei URL: MinGW-w64 is in all senses the successor to MinGW.org’s version. Now I'm using simply mysys2, it has mingw_w64 for 32bits and 64 bits, it has gcc and clang, clang tools, analyzer, etc. Malheureusement, le programme d'installation de MinGW-w64 que vous avez utilisé présente parfois ce problème. Cygwin produces executables that run only on Cygwin, MinGW produces native executables that do not have dependencies apart from what Windows already provides. Been learning c++ this semester. Does anybody have any tips for making my setup a bit easier when it comes to installing libraries etc, and still be able to use Sublime? MinGW MinGW (Minimalist GNU for Windows), formerly mingw32, is a native software port of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) to Microsoft Windows along with a set of freely distributable import libraries and header files for the Windows API. ( Log Out /  That’s all I have as of now on Cygwin and MinGw. You have mingw but also gcc and clang, plus all of those packages. MinGW is *NOT* an improvement over Cygwin. I'm struggling a bit to understand what MinGW really is, and i'm not as comfortable in cmd as in cygwin. I prefer using Git Bash instead of Cygwin. Cygwin émule tout l'environnement POSIX, tandis que MinGW est un ensemble d'outils minimal pour la compilation uniquement (compile l'application native Win.) MSYS2 uses Pacman (known from Arch Linux) to manage its packages and comes with three different package repositories: 1. msys2: Containing MSYS2-dependent software 2. mingw64: Containing 64-bit native Windows software (compiled with mingw-w64 x86_64 toolchain) 3. mingw32: Containing 32-bit native Windows software (compiled with mingw-w64 i686 toolchain) Cygwin comes only with Cygwin-dependent software. MinGW allows developers to create native Microsoft Windows applications. MinGW is higher performance than Cygwin, but it’s also 32-bit which may be a problem with your applications. MinGW does not have a Unix emulation layer like Cygwin. In my opinion its plain stupid to use text editors for programming when there are IDEs like VS Code or Jetbrains stuff. You can also easily build a program which doesn't require a console window, using gcc -mwindows, under MinGW and Cygwin.
