I am trying to get koolplot (Simplest Graph Plotting for C or C++) to work with Visual Express. The site provides a linux library file (libkoolplot.a), and I am trying to recompile the code to generate a Windows library file instead (e.g. libkoolplot.lib). Unfortunately, I just can't get this to work.
koolplot also requires the WinBGIm library (WinBGIm - Borland BGI emulation for MingW). Similarly, the WinBGIm site provides a ".a" library file. In this case, I was able to successfully recompile WinBGIm to generate a ".lib" file and I can now use the WinBGIm commands. I would like to do the same with koolplot!
Does anyone have a compiled ".lib" koolplot file that will work with Visual Express? Can anyone shed some light on the steps required to get koolplot to compile into a .lib?
p.s. I am new to programming, so please let me know if there are any problems with my plan/process.
