    Installing libcurl library

    Ok so I downloaded the latest curl sources from here: http://curl.haxx.se/download.html and I just don't know how to install this. I need to install these libraries for MinGW.

    It seems that I compiled it correctly (going to the lib folder, and typing "make -f Makefile.m32" at the command prompt [had to modify the Makefile at line 147 for some reason] ). I now have libcurl.a, libcurl.dll, libcurl.ref and libcurldll.a files, but I don't know how to install them. I also copied the 'include' folder inside the curl package into the 'include/curl' folder MinGW uses.

    Please help! Thanks a lot!

    The .a files should go in the lib/ folder.

    And is that it? Do I have to do something else so that I could use libcurl functions?

    because apparently it doesn't work.

    Oh, the .dll files should probably go in there too. I can't think of anything else you could need to do. Edit: and by "in there", I mean in lib/.
