Does anyone have a *simple* makefile for lua v5.4-rc1? It would be for
the mingw compiler on Windows 10. The makefiles with the source code are
just to complex for me too understand. I just need to build lua.exe,
luac.exe, and lua54.dll. I can handle installation and testing manually.
Warning: I'm at work so all this is largely untested from my (very) faulty memory...
Luawinmake uses batch to build Lua. The repo has a 5.4 branch but I don't know if it works with rc1
This is an educated guess, but: If you're using gcc-mingw and GNU Make on Windows then you can run something like:
make "MAKE=make" "CC=x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc" mingw
where "x86_64" is 64 bit and "i686" is 32 bit. I think that *should* work with 5.4-rc1. I'm not sure if you will have problems with `strip`, but if you post back I can help. I've noted that when running `make` on Windows it barfs if there are spaces in the path to the `make` executable so I specify the short name in the parameters.
If you're not sure where you are getting mingw from, I have a *beta* installer called WinLua that installs Lua5.3, LuaRocks and the LLVM-Mingw compiler (and make): http://www.winlua.net
. My toolchain requires a patch to the src/makefile:
