RE: build svn nmap on mswin32 under cygwin

I hear that about time constraints ... working on a PhD full time and also
working in industry full time as well :)

Hmm ... I wonder if there is a way to get visual studio to generate a
build.xml

Take care,
Sina

I can't stress enough that no visual studio should be required ... I

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.

Take care,
Sina
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!
