Build and Install (dfl.lib and dfl_debug.lib)

1. Set environment variables

Fix the paths below:

set dmd_path=c:\d\dmd2\windows
set dmc_path=c:\dmc\dm

2. Install the undeaD library

DFL is required the undeaD library (undead.lib). Download a ZIP file from https://github.com/dlang/undead. Extract undeaD-master.zip and run the below with either option -a=x86omf, x8632mscoff or x86_64:

> cd undeaD-master
> dub build -a=x86_omf
    Starting Performing "debug" build using C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin\dmd.exe for x86, x86_omf.
  Up-to-date undead ~master: target for configuration [library] is up to date.
> dir bin /b
undead.lib

Copy the undead.lib to your/lib/dir.

3. Make dfl.lib and dfl_debug.lib

Run makelib.bat:

> cd dfl/win32/dfl
> makelib.bat 32omf     # 32-bit omf

or (MSVC required)

> makelib.bat           # 32-bit mscoff

or (MSVC required)

> makelib.bat 32mscoff  # ditto

or (MSVC required)

> makelib.bat 64        # 64-bit mscoff

Also copy dfl.lib and dfl_debug.lib to your/lib/dir.

IMPORTANT: Both library files are containing the undead.lib and WINSDK libraries such as user32.lib, gdi32.lib and so on.

In order to make and move *.lib to paths below:

  • go32omf.bat : Make and move *.lib to %dmd_path%\lib
  • go.bat (MSVC required) : Make and move *.lib to %dmd_path%\lib32mscoff
  • go.bat 32mscoff (MSVC required) : ditto
  • go64.bat (MSVC required) : Make and move *.lib to %dmd_path%\lib64

With DUB

First, add DFL to local DUB registry:

> cd dfl
> dub add-local .
> dub list
Packages present in the system and known to dub:
  dfl ~master: c:\your\path\dfl\

Build and run your GUI applications with DUB as below:

> cd examples\hello_dfl
> dub build -a=x86_omf
> dub run

See also ./examples/hello_dfl/dub.json.

IMPORTANT: DUB is building dfl_dub.lib that is not containing undead.lib and WINSDK libraries.
