For compiling on Linux, see Tutorial:Compiling & Installing SWORD.

Compiling The SWORD Project using MS Visual Studio 2013

  1. Create a build directory, hereafter referred to as $dir$. Much of the Sword build process expects that various downloads be unpacked to the same directory.

Compiling cURL

  1. Download the latest release of cURL
  2. Extract the ZIP to $dir$
  3. Rename the cURL directory to "curl" (with no version number)
  4. Start a Developer Command Prompt (find this on your Start Menu in the Visual Studio 2013 | Visual Studio Tools menu)
  5. cd to $dir$/curl/winbuild
  6. Execute: nmake /f Makefile.vc mode=static DEBUG=no

Compiling ICU

  1. Download the latest release of ICU. At writing, the latest version is 52.1: [1]
  2. Extract the tarball to $dir$
  3. Open $dir$\icu\source\allinone\allinone.sln
  4. Build all (Click Build | Batch Build... | Select All | Build)

Compiling bzip2

  1. Download the latest release of bzip2. At writing, the latest version is 1.0.6: [2]
  2. Extract the archive to $dir$ and rename the directory bzip2
  3. Open $dir$\bzip2\libbz2.dsp and allow Visual Studio to update the project
  4. Build all (Click Build | Batch Build... | Select All | Build)

Downloading liblzma

  1. Download the latest release of xz prebuilt for Windows from tukaani.org. At writing, the latest version is 5.0.5: [3]
  2. Extract the archive to $dir$/xz
  3. Start a Developer Command Prompt (find this on your Start Menu in the Visual Studio 2013 | Visual Studio Tools menu)
  4. cd to $dir$/xz/bin_i486
  5. Execute: lib /def:../doc/liblzma.def /out:liblzma.lib /machine:x86

Compiling CLucene

  1. Install cmake
  2. Download the latest version of boost. At writing, the latest version is 1.5.5: [4]
  3. Extract the archive to $dir$
  4. Rename the boost directory to "boost"
  5. Download a snapshot of the CLucene 2_3_2 branch
  6. Extract the archive to $dir$
  7. Rename the CLucene directory to "clucene"
  8. Start a regular Command Prompt (cmd.exe)
  9. cd to $dir$/clucene
  10. Set Boost environment variables by executing the following (with replacements for $dir$):
set BOOST_BUILD_PATH=$dir$\boost\tools\build\v2
set BOOST_PATH=$dir$
set BOOST_ROOT=$dir$\boost
  1. Execute: mkdir cmakebuild
  2. Execute: cd cmakebuild
  3. Execute: cmake -G "Visual Studio 12" ..
  4. Open $dir$\clucene\cmakebuild\clucene.sln
  5. Ensure that the Release configuration is selected and build the BUILD_ALL solution

Compiling libsword

  1. Download the latest release of The SWORD Project
  2. Extract the tarball to $dir$
If you are building utilities or diatheke, the following steps are not necessary:
  1. Open $dir$\sword-$version$\lib\vcppmake\vc8\libsword.vcproj
  2. Build all (Click Build | Batch Build... | Select All | Build)

Compiling utilities

  1. Open $dir$\sword-$version$\utilities\vcppmake\utilities.sln
  2. Build all (Click Build | Batch Build... | Select All | Build)

Cross Compiling Sword for MS Windows on Suse Linux with MingW

Suse with MingW

Installation of all necessary dependencies of Sword, but for CLucene - libcurl, ICU, libgnurx etc -

Compilation of Clucene

clucene 0.9.21b source

The scripts for compiling sword and clucene in xiphos/win32/suse are meant to be used from ~/source/ with the clucene and sword directories directly under that. I would suggest reading the scripts. They aren't complicated, and I'm sure that I made assumptions about my environment (which is basically the *sole* reason for the warning that they aren't ready, I never meant they couldn't be used). You can go ahead and try to use them to cross-compile clucene. It will probably fail. If at that point, you send me config.log, that will help me remember what to do to fix it.


edit m4/dps_static_const_type.m4, the last AC_DEFINE line. Change from:

AC_MSG_ERROR([Cannot figure out how to write static consts in classes. Check the m4 script or upgrade your compiler])

to:

AC_DEFINE([LUCENE_STATIC_CONSTANT_SYNTAX], 1, [How to define a static const in a class])

eg, the same as the first AC_DEFINE. I have no idea if it's correct, actually, but it seems to work ;)

Next, edit src/Makefile.am, line 6. Add -no-undefined at the end, like so:

libclucene_la_LDFLAGS  = --version-info $(CLLIB_VERSION) --release
$(PACKAGE_VERSION) -no-undefined

src/CLucene/store/FSDirectory.cpp

At the top of that file, after the #include directives, I just added this:

#define _mkdir mkdir


After changing these, you'll have to run autogen.sh and then re-configure using my script. It *should* build after this, at which point run sudo make install. Check to be sure it created a dll rather than just a static library (which will end in .la). It should be located in /usr/i686-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/bin

After this Clucene compiles without errors and creates a working dll.
