I found the official N64 development libraries and demo sources out on emule, but the complete compiler is not present. |
It looks like it was meant to be compiled with a form of gcc that was supplied by Kyoto Microcomputer. A patch for the compiler is present, supplying updated versions of make.out, ld.out, mild.out, and exew32.exe. I figured out that exew32.exe is a windows executable that will run these .out (SGI binaries?) files in windows. Not much use without at least gcc.out.
What I want to know is if it might be possible to compile with gnu gcc (in linux for example). If it is, then why were they being patched by Kyoto?
Anyway, the sources/makefiles are made to be compiled after win/dos environment variables were set by supplied windows batch files.
Basically, I need some help setting up the environment variables and paths so I can try to compile with gnu gcc.
here are the batch file commands:
set gccsw=-mips3 -mgp32 -mfp32 -funsigned-char -D_LANGUAGE_C -D_ULTRA64 -D__EXTENSIONS__
rem set Microsoft Visual C Ver 4.2 install directory
rem set MSVC=d:\msvc
rem set Borland C Ver 5.0 install directory
rem set BCC=d:\bc5
I have to wonder if MS or Borland C compilers are needed.
or how I would set
to always be used.
or how to tell gcc where to find the N64 libraries, for this project. I really don't want to put them in /usr/lib
any help would be great.
