I downloaded extensive ANSI-C compatible source code that I need for a simulation I am working on. The downloaded project contains a number of header files and makefiles written for gcc. I would like to be able to build and run this project (presumably in console mode unless it is easier to do it otherwise) on my MSVC++ 4.0 compiler and then make some minor adjustments to the code.
The problem is I have no idea how to get the project to build on my compiler! I have no experience using makefiles or building external projects. I need step by step
guidance about how to get the thing
built. The Microsoft instructions
about this have been worthless. All help will
be eternally appeciated.
