Build and installation instructions for Postgres v6.4 client libraries on Win32.
The makefiles included in Postgres are written for Microsoft Visual C++, and will probably not work with other systems. It should be possible to compile the libaries manually in other cases.
To build the libraries, change directory into the src directory, and type the command
nmake /f win32.makThis assumes that you have Visual C++ in your path.
The following files will be built:
interfaces\libpq\Release\libpq.dll - The dynamically linkable frontend library
interfaces\libpq\Release\libpqdll.lib - Import library to link your program to libpq.dll
interfaces\libpq\Release\libpq.lib - Static library version of the frontend library
bin\psql\Release\psql.exe - The Postgresql interactive SQL monitor
