The interesting thing about those instructions is that it highlights the
[new?] fact that wxWidgets can now be built on Windows without MSYS, or
CYGWIN. This is a significant development.
And if true, it now means that CMake can probably drive the invocation of
wxWidgets build process:
mingw32-make -f makefile.gcc SHARED=0 UNICODE=1 USE_OPENGL=1 BUILD=release
mingw32-make -f makefile.gcc SHARED=0 UNICODE=1 USE_OPENGL=1 BUILD=debug
using CMake's "external project" mechanism.
I could be hired to help you, but I won't spend a moment on Windows for free.
But with this information, I expand my suggestion that a Windows developer
also enhance or write a CMake script so that it builds everything needed for
This way it knows what is built, and where it is. The same can be one on
linux for Windows, as I mentioned late last week. But this is an expansion
of the idea to include:
on Window for Windows.
Code blocks is a side show in this discussion and plays no role in building
if CMake is the underlying build tool.
