Subject: Low/Makefile.PL not right for MS Windows
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 467b
Hi, I've just downloaded the current SWI-Prolog binaries (5.10.2) for Windows. The Low/Makefile.PL tries to run `plcon.exe -dump-runtime- variables`, but there's no such executable with 5.10.2. Instead, it needs to run `swipl.exe -dump-runtime-variables`. Also, the name of the import library is 'swipl.lib', not 'pl.lib' as the Low/Makefile.PL expects. The attached patch (portably) fixes the problem ... albeit in a not- particularly-elegant way. Cheers, Rob
