Re: how to make a .lib from msfl70d.dll
I apologize for not being clearer. They do ship two import libraries. One
is for Borland C++, and one is for MS Visual C++. They do want people to
use the dll since that is what they are selling. And, as DJ pointed out, I
am able to use the VisualC++ library with gcc. I just dont want to if I can
What I want to do is make my own, since that is meant to be doable, and the
process is outlined on the cygwin U.guide under building and using dlls. I
am just failing miserably.
