Due to popular demand, I have built a binary distribution of Mercury
for Windows 95 and Windows NT. It is now available at
For those of you who want to build from the source distribution on Windows,
I have discovered some useful information while building the above binary
- Mercury 0.7 builds cleanly using gnu-win32 version b17.1
(just follow the instructions in README.MS-Windows).
- Mercury 0.7 does NOT build "out-of-the-box" using version b18
of gnu-win32. I think the problem is due to the mprotect()
function in b18. If that's correct, then invoking configure
with the environment variable `ac_cv_func_mprotect_func' set
to `no' would probably avoid the problem. However, I haven't
verified this hypothesis.
The binary distribution that I built using gnu-win32 b17.1 will probably
work with b18, but I haven't verified this.
