Re: command line compile
You need to make a MAKE file.
And pass that to the command line compile.

MCVS can export its make file.
If you don';t have that then you'll need to make your own make file.
Im don't know how to do that yet. im using the msvc visual version so i get the make file which msvc makes it self .
I only know how to do my linux make file.
And i asume that's not compatible with msvc.

Re: command line compile
You're not forced to make a Makefile... you can compile from the command line if you know what you are doing.

For example, a command-line compile and linking can look like this:


MKDIR Release

CD Release

CALL "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Bin\VCVARS32.BAT"

CL.EXE /nologo /MT /W3 /GX /O2 /I "..\..\metamod" /I "..\..\..\devtools\sdk\Single-Player Source\dlls" /I "..\..\..\devtools\sdk\Single-Player Source\common" /I "..\..\..\devtools\sdk\Single-Player Source\engine" /I "C:\Some\Other\Include\Path" /D "WIN32" /D "NDEBUG" /D "_WINDOWS" /D "_MBCS" /D "_USRDLL" /D "yourproject_EXPORTS" /YX /FD /c ..\yourproject_file1.cpp

REM add other CL.EXE lines for each .cpp file to compile

LINK.EXE kernel32.lib user32.lib gdi32.lib winspool.lib comdlg32.lib advapi32.lib shell32.lib ole32.lib oleaut32.lib uuid.lib odbc32.lib odbccp32.lib /nologo /dll /machine:I386 /def:"..\yourproject.def" yourproject_file1.obj yourproject_file2.obj yourproject_fileN.obj

ECHO.build complete

CD ..

Re: command line compile
so what do i do with this makefile?
ive setenv /2000 /RETAIL
from dos prompt in:
c:\program files\microsoft sdk>
makefile is here:
c:\program files\microsoft sdk\metamod-1.17>
sorry im a total n00b!!!
where can i find the commands to use? do i use them from c:\program files\microsoft sdk> or does the dir matter?

ok wow! quick one pmb!
this should help a bit. Is there a good online resource for command line compiler (.net framework)? msdn is very difficult to find compiler help. It says that the command line compiler is well documented, it probably is but i cannot find the dox!?!

Re: command line compile
so i just got msvc 6 se (off a friend of a friend who took a class in college). I get this error:
engine_api.cpp(386) : error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'void (__cdecl *)(void *,char *,...)' to 'void (__cdecl *)(struct _iobuf *,char *,...)'
This conversion requires a reinterpret_cast, a C-style cast or function-style cast

what didnt i do right, im still getting used to this program.

Re: command line compile
well for starters it would help if you posted what was contained on line 386 of engine_api.cpp...

Re: command line compile
i suppose you're right

META_ENGINE_HANDLE_void_varargs(FN_ENGINEFPRINTF, pfnEngineFprintf, pfile, szFmt);


void mm_EngineFprintf(FILE *pfile, char *szFmt, ...) {
META_ENGINE_HANDLE_void_varargs(FN_ENGINEFPRINTF, pfnEngineFprintf, pfile, szFmt);

botman 11-04-2004 15:22

Re: command line compile

void mm_EngineFprintf(FILE *pfile, char *szFmt, ...)
...to this...

void mm_EngineFprintf((struct _iobuf *)pfile, char *szFmt, ...)
The question is, WHY is 'FILE' being interpreted as 'void' when it should be a 'struct _iobuf' type? I think you are missing some include files that would resolve 'FILE' to the proper type.


Pierre-Marie Baty 11-04-2004 20:48

Re: command line compile
That's what I think too. Metamod must be detecting what type of compiler it's being compiled on, and yours must not be caught in the list. You'd perhaps better have a look at where it's done.

Re: command line compile
/* Define __cdecl for non-Microsoft compilers */

could this be it? (from: stdio.h) I am using a microsoft compiler though: msvc 6 se
