The first problem I had was to prevent the makefile
from building "usocket.c", and to use "wsocket.c"
Is there a compilation flag I missed ?
No...the makefile which comes with LuaSocket is for Linux/Unix; the
Windows-flavoured build file is socket.vcproj.
You're not doing anything wrong -- you need to edit the makefile for
MinGW. Change usocket.o to wsocket.o, and comment out the bit which builds
$(UNIX_SO) since you don't get Unix domain sockets on Windows.
Also add -lws2_32 to the LDFLAGS= line in the 'config' file (in the root
of the Luasocket distro), and add -DLUASOCKET_API=__declspec(dllexport) to
the DEF= line.
Errr, I think you also need to change EXT=so to EXT=dll.
And if you plan to use 'make install', change the INSTALL_TOP settings to
something Windowesque based on where Lua itself is installed.
(This from memory; you can check these facts by digging in [the XML mess
that is] socket.vcproj :-)
