I can't stress enough that no visual studio should be required ... I think
nmap compiles with just the sdk provided by installing .net, and so you
don't even need the free express versions.
I will see if I can carve out some time to try to compile nmap with those
tools, but it's a bit tricky, and it would require someone to write an
msbuild file for it, since the sln is a solution file for visual studio, and
we really need a build.xml.
That would be a good idea - I had hours of hair pulling when I first was
setting visual studio (expr. edn.) up!
Ok, the other thing is this. Please check out mingw ... I have never used
cygwin in the past four or five years, and I am perfectly happy. Mingw gives
me all of my little gnu tools like wc, find, gawk/awk, grep, and the rest,
all in any windows cmd prompt.
It also gives me an extremely stable and good version of gcc, make,
autoconf, and so on.
Mingw you say, I like the sound of that and I'll have a go. One step at
a time though, I want to conquer this cygwin thing because it used to
compile nmap with UMIT with no (well, not many) problems... Thanks for
the tip! (and: every day's a school day)
