We work on a project that have to run and be distributed under
windows/cygwin and different flavors of unix (for the time being,
solaris and linux). We do want to have the same tool to distribute our
project over these platforms and try to use free approach so I come to
my subject. has port of the setup code been made on unices ? I try to
use the source on my linux box but, if the configure do it ok, the
compilation halt on the getopt.c file. So have something been done ?
Another question, is there a non interactive mode of setup (one you can
use on the command line) ?
thanks for your work
the standardisation of the distribution formats,
the existence of a configuration file to define exctly what version of
what package to use
As the development is a collaborative one it is easier to use a well
defined product than write another one (if adaptation of the setup tool
is not too hard).
