I’m sure this has been discussed a hundred times, but searching for "cygwin"
in the Ruby-Talk archive gives a million results. I’d appreciate it if
someone could point me at an appropriate archive entry.
What I’m trying to do is build the calendar extension for a mate of mine.
When I run “ruby install.rb config” the Makefile it generates contains what
look like Microsoft command-line compiler commands.
Does this imply that the extensions can only be built with VC, or is there
some way to tell it I have cygwin (and hence gcc) installed and that it
should generate a Makefile that uses cygwin?
Thanks in advance,
