Compiling the library in Windows
================================

DISCLAIMER: these notes are not very reliable, as they're
based on some very simple tests, without much knowledge of
the Windows operating system.

1) Using MinGW/MSYS

Everything goes as in standard *nix systems (you should
probably change the default installation location with the
--prefix option in `configure').
With the default options, the `configure' sctipt produces a
DLL. If you want to build a static library, you should pass the
options --disable-shared and --disable-declspec to
`configure', and make sure you define the preprocessor
LQR_DISABLE_DECLSPEC whenever you want to compile/link
against the static library.

2) Using MS Visual C++

The library compiles with `Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express
edition' and `Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express Edition'.
Follow these steps:

a) Create a new project (suggested name: `liblqr-1-0')

*) In the 2008 edition, create an empty DLL project with
the default setup (choose Console Application then
Advanced Settings -> DLL + Empty Project). The
suggested name is liblr-1-0

*) In the 2010 edition, choose Empty project

b) Copy the `lqr' directory in the project directory you
have created

c) Add all the source files within the `lqr' directory to
the project (right-click -> Add -> Existing item...)

d) Go to Project -> Properties in the menu. This opens a
dialog. At the top, set "Configuration:" to "All
Configurations". Then, go to "Configuration Properties"
and set the options as follows:

*) [2010 edition only] General -> Configuration Type:
Dynamic Library

*) C/C++ -> General -> Additional Include Directories:
add the directory `lqr' and its parent, and also the
directory where all the necessary glib-2.0 headers are
found (usually, there are 2 of those, one ends with
`include\glib-2.0', another with
`lib\glib-2.0\include')

*) C/C++ -> Preprocessor -> Preprocessor Definitions: add
LQR_EXPORTS to the list

*) C/C++ -> Advanced -> Compile As: Compile as C Code (it
also works otherwise, but this option seems to make
sense given that the library is ANSI C)

*) Linker -> General -> Version: set version number

*) Linker -> General -> Additional Library Directories:
add the directory where glib-2.0.lib is found

*) Linker -> Input -> Additional Dependencies: add
glib-2.0.lib

When you build the project, it should produce the library
liblqr-1-0.lib and liblqr-1-0.dll files (assuming your
project is called `liblqr-1-0').
