Compiling CBuild on MinGW32

Can CBuild (from APEG 1.2.1) be compiled on MinGW?

I tried both the batch file and manual installation (using MSYS) but I got the following linker error message:

cbuild.c: undefined reference to `mkstemp'

What am I missing?

$ gcc -v

It seems neither Windows nor MinGW have mkstemp. Could you try the attached version? It should work, hopefully. If it does, I'll update the archives.

EDIT:
There was another problem related to the Windows version. If you downloaded the attachment before, please get it again.

Mingw has tmpnam(). Maybe you could substitute and strcat the result?

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

I switched to tmpfile() + fileno(), which is an all-around cleaner solution to what I needed. :) Windows seems to have it (even though MSVC has it deprecated in favor of tmpfile_s, and I need to define fileno to _fileno :P).

Thanks, Kitty Cat!

It compiled fine. I even compiled APEG with it. ;D
