For this, we deposit all files in a sub folder 'tools' in c:\, and inside, the folder containing sources et binaries.
Here is how it give :
we take all sources on a sub folder c:\tools\src and the compilation make installation on c:\tools\bin\
All sources of DB Berkeley are on the Oracle's site here
Warning: Open Cobol need the version 4.5 maximum for compiling.
The file who have downloaded with Firefox is 'db-4.5.20.NC.tar.gz'
I have copied this file into c:\tools\src\
tar -xzvf db-4.5.20.NC.tar.gz
After this,when all is done, launch the compilation with :
That's can take some time.
You can find several documentation on the folder c:\tools\src\db-4.5.20.NC\docs\ (seeing with a browser)
When the compilation is finished , launch the command :
For easy made, it's most easy than using symbolic link who see the last version installed on the computer.(UNIX/Linux functionality :-}) )
ln -s /cygdrive/c/tools/bin/db-4.5.20.NC /cygdrive/c/tools/bin/db
Normally, You must have 4 sub folders:
the Most important is 'lib'
See you on the next lesson for the 'gmp' compile.
