Software News   Software News : Spot's Porting for Dummies 1.7.1 released!
   posted by spotUP on 14-Aug-2007 14:46:10 (1522 reads)
Fresh from Spot's bedroom! - Spot's Porting for Dummies 1.7.1
The last version didn't do it for ya? Well, cheer up!
I've added some very useful lines to the quick reference section
that will get rid of linking errors and making a lot of makefile
editing useless. =) Have another go! You can do it!

Read the history for a detailed list of changes.
http://os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=document/manual/spots-pfd.txt


WHY SHOULD I READ THIS? I CAN'T CODE!
=====================================

Well, the sad fact is that, neither can I! :) I am just a stubborn geezer!
And look at me now... 300+ uploads to http://os4depot.net compiling
multiplatform stuff for AmigaOS 4.0 isn't THAT hard, c'mon! If I can do it,
you can do it too! You'll jump up and down screaming when you managed to
compile your first SDL app, I did! To my defence I have to say that I had
to figure out a lot of the process the hard way! :P
/Spot
