    Compiling in Windows (Supreme infernal task)

    Hello!

    There's no documentation about Tor's compilation on Windows, only in linux.
    I have this files in that folders I posted bellow.
    I have Makefiles .in and .am, don't knowwhat to do with them.

    How do i compile this stuff?

    Thank you!

    You need automake to convert Makefile.am into a regular makefile.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    After that i can use CMake to compile that regular makefile right?


    Edit:

    I Installed this automake: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/automake.htm
    But i can find any .EXE, and the documentation only talks about linux console commands.

    What can i do?

    Not sure if it produces a CMake type makefile, or a standard type makefile. gmake would be one choice (probably a good one, as the code probably compiles on Linux, using gnumake as the make system).

    I'm gonna kill myself.

    I'm using cygwin and everything is going great UNTIL i do "make" in tor (wich is the last step of this compilation that took 3 days).

    But i got this error:

    No rule to make target 'am--refresh'. Stop
    Is there any solution or its just the real world against me? :'''(


    Edit:

    The full error is this one:

    cd ../.. && make am--refresh
    make[1]: Entering directory '/cygdrive'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'am--refresh'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory '/cygdrive'
    make: *** [../../config.status] Error 2

    If you RTM, you would have found out that you should have used mingw32 instead.

    See r2r's post above.
