Ticket #1276 (closed bug: invalid)
Parrot does't build on Win32 with MSVC
|Reported by:||whiteknight||Owned by:|
The build fails on win32 with msvc (cl version 15.0) with the following error:
NMAKE : fatal error U1095: expanded command line 'ar -out:blib\lib\parrot ...' Too long
The command is pretty long since it includes all the .obj files from src/* and subdirectories. However, there's a bigger problem too: msvc doesn't have an "ar.exe" program to run. That appears to be a GNU-only utility.
So this ticket has two parts:
- How can we shrink the size of that commandline?
- What is the equivalent program for ar.exe in microsoft land?
