Yeah, had also been googling around for an hour or more. Damn. Those two links and others I encountered, but it's too much of a hassle to look up now
you use Windows NT/2k/XP, you can open the Control Panel, click the 'System' applet, the 'Advanced' tab and finally the 'Environment' button, and then add MINGDIR.
Actually, I did that but it didn't work. That's exactly the part where I got stuck, and then the mingw32.txt didn't really help that much further.
I prefer to use dmc.exe, though, not gcc or mingw, etc., it's confusing as hell and doesn't work for me, even if I've followed the damn directions. What is the proper way to set up Allegro for Digital Mars? Haven't seen any documentation for it, so I've been just "guessing" and hoping it's possible at all. (gcc is too much pain (even to look at).)
Have taken the pre-compiled Allegro and put the 'bin' and 'include' into my 'dm' (compiler) directory, and put the three DLLs into C:\windows\system32. [s]But when I compile my first -- har har(!) -- simple basic Allegro program, it can't open the 'allegro.h' ? I instructed the compiler to look at it, but no.[/s] It gives me only errors now, but it least it can find allegro.h now
And what's the story with that 'lib' directory from the pre-compiled Allegro? They are all .a files, and I can't find any information about them.
All this searching and searching: arrrgh!
