mingw_get resource in any recipe to fetch mingw packages.
mingw_tdm_gcc resource to fetch a version of the TDM GCC compiler.
:install- Installs a mingw package from sourceforge using mingw-get.exe.
:remove- Uninstalls a mingw package.
:upgrade- Upgrades a mingw package (even to a lower version).
package- A mingw-get package (or meta-package) to fetch and install. You may use a legal package wild-card pattern here if you are installing. This is the name attribute.
root- The root directory where msys and mingw tools will be installed. This directory must not contain any spaces in order to pacify old posix tools and most Makefiles.
To get the core msys developer tools in
mingw_get 'msys-base=2013072300-msys-bin.meta' do root 'C:\mingw32' end
:install- Installs the TDM compiler toolchain at the given path. This only gives you a compiler. If you need any support tooling such as make/grep/awk/bash etc., see
:seh_sjlj_64. TDM-64 is a 32/64-bit multi-lib "cross-compiler" toolchain that builds 64-bit by default. It uses structured exception handling (SEH) in 64-bit code and setjump-longjump exception handling (SJLJ) in 32-bit code. TDM-32 only builds 32-bit binaries and uses SJLJ.
root- The root directory where compiler tools and runtime will be installed. This directory must not contain any spaces in order to pacify old posix tools and most Makefiles.
version- The version of the compiler to fetch and install. This is the name attribute. Currently, '5.1.0' is supported.
To get the 32-bit TDM GCC compiler in
mingw_tdm_gcc '5.1.0' do flavor :sjlj_32 root 'C:\mingw32' end
