in thread RFC: Compiling C/C++ based Modules under ActiveState using MinGW
I'm wondering, why do you need dmake, in your opinion?
You don't - I was shying away from that because I don't have a link to a recent and reliable version of nmake. I know there's an 'nmake15' (or an 'nmake1.5' ... or something like that) that's readily locatable, but it fails to build PDL and probably some other modules as well. I don't really want to link to a make utility that doesn't provide the milage offered by dmake.
I'll update the meditation to include mention of the fact that one can use nmake with MinGW. If you can provide a link to a recent and reliable version of it, I'll add that to the meditation, too.
Thanks for the heads up.
