I did not really understand what do those instructions are telling me to do, my friend noted that it's an old lib.. and why can't I just use the built-in GDI functions. We started googling around, but to no avail. No, we did not google for hours, to say that we googled the whole web, but he suggested me to post on the forum, so I did.
In order to compile Magick++ you must have access to a standard C++ implementation. The author uses gcc 3.1 (GNU C++) which is available under UNIX and under the Cygwin UNIX-emulation environment for Windows. Standards compliant commercial C++ compilers should also work fine. Most modern C++ compilers for Microsoft Windows or the Mac should work (project files are provided for Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0).
