Here’s the first part of my Windows set up documentation. This one only covers the process of setting up a normal box for building LLVM and Clang. A later document, which will follow in a few days, will cover how to set up a buildbot slave.
As usual: I’m not a psychic, so if you have opinions regarding or suggestions on this document, please feel free to share them with me (on this mailing list).
To see the document in its full glory, as it is going to look on the website, do this (I am NOT bragging about my document, I am just very happy about the whole switch to Sphinx - the color coding of the examples is awesome thanks to Sphinx and Pygments):
- Ensure you have Python and Sphinx installed.
- Copy the attached file to llvm/docs.
- Run “make html”.
- Open up the HTML document at “llvm/docs/_build/html/Building with MinGW on Windows.html”.
I’m especially interested in tips and tricks that Windows users should or must know. Things that can make it difficult for them to succeed. Things that can scare them away (my writing style?). Things that can confuse them. And so on.
