Currently, PCC will build on most unix-based operating systems.
Building PCC is reasonably straight-forward:
$ ./configure $ make && make install
By default, the compiler is installed to /usr/local/bin/pcc and the pre-processor in /usr/local/libexec/cpp.
To use PCC as the system compiler you may need to modify some system header files. See Supported-Platforms for information about your platform.
If you wish to build a cross-compiler, some further information is available at Cross-Compiler.
If you wish to cross-compile PCC, some further information is available at Cross-Compile
Microsoft Windows Host
PCC will build on Microsoft Windows
Compilation has been tested with Visual Studio 7, but should also work with the Microsoft C++ Toolkit. You also need bison and flex as build tools. These tools can be found in the UnxTools distribution.
- open the Visual Studio Command Prompt
- change directory to the pcc source and into the os/win32 directory
- customize the paths in build.bat
- find bison.simple in the UnxTools distribution and modify build.bat to point to it's location, or copy this file into os\win32.
- run build.bat
By default, directories under c:\pcc will contain the built binaries. You can add c:\pcc\bin to your path.
You will need the YASM assembler. Rename yasm.exe and copy the binary into c:\pcc\bin. Install the libraries and include files under c:\pcc\include and c:\pcc\lib.
You will also need the include files and libraries from mingw32 runtime and w32api. You can find these file on the pcc ftp server.
