- Subject: Can I build a windows dll and lib from cygwin
As I am only just getting into cygwin, I would like to know if it is possible to
build a block of unix code (just console applications) and produce a dll which
can be called by windows applications.
I have done this following the advice on the cygwin sites and produce the 2
files which i thought i needed these are foo.a (renamed to foo.lib below) and
When I try to build a windows application linking to foo.a i get an error saying
the lib file can not be understood.
Have misunderstood the objective of the dll tool is it only to build apps on
I am using an application called matlab to build this file and get the following
Microsoft (R) 32-Bit Incremental Linker Version 5.00.7022

vistaread_mex.obj foo.lib mexversion.res
vistaread_mex.obj : error : Internal error during Pass1
Does this mean anything to anyone?
