source tree on a Windows XP Pro machine?
For a background, I have mostly programmed in VB6, C# and VB.NET. I
understand the syntax of the following languages, but have not used
the tools around these (such as editors, make files, ant etc.):
C, C++, Ruby, Python, Common Lisp & Scheme, Java, PHP.
Help will be much appreciated.
Re: Compiling PHP source on a Windows XP machine
I just spotted a file in the root of the source tree, that has the
instructions for building PHP source on a Windows machine. The file
name is README.WIN32-BUILD-SYSTEM. It is very well written.
Any other developer who may want to try it out may do so. I am going
to try it.
It also has an email address to write to if one encounters any
problems in building. The email address is: internals at lists dot php
