Re: Subversion checkout/update issue under Windows


Hi, Janek:

Personally I anticipate very much a windows version of YADE, although I myself currently have no time to do this. Since we should aware the potential users of YADE, a large percent of the users would be from Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering community. If we keep compile YADE purely on Linux, I am afraid we might lose some potential users: the learning curve for Linux and YADE is way much longer than windows, although we can argue Linux is a good, free, open source system, but I did see some people gave up and turned to sth like PFC, typing command and debugging source codes is not a mandatory training for most Civil Engineers. In a word, can we make things easier? :-)

thanks for reporting. I've fixed it in the latest commit.

But anyway yade is not going to compile on windows, unless you've got
skills for doing that. Technically it's possible, but you will need
to modify some code for that.

If you manage to compile yade on windows, please send us a diff of
your modifications, or commit it yourself to the repository!
