Running hex13 on Cygwin?

Postby KittyTac » March 17th, 2018, 9:05 am

Title. I got through the steps up until "make" (after "make clean") and it outputs the error message:

g++ -std=c++1z -Wall -Wextra -O3 -march=native   -c -o src/main.o src/main.cpp
In file included from src/main.cpp:1:0:
src/webserver.h:10:24: fatal error: microhttpd.h: No such file or directory
#include <microhttpd.h>
                        ^
compilation terminated.
make: *** [<integrated>: src/main.o] Error 1


NOTE: I had to translate the error message from my language, it might be not word-for-word.

It's only been successfully tested in two environments:

  • On Linux, using the regular 'make' tool;
  • On Windows (not Cygwin), using 'cmake'.
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

Ask Tim Hutton; he's the only person who's succeeded in running hex13 on Windows.

Also, this should probably be in Other Cellular Automata; it's a simulator for a family of 2^64-state cellular automata on a 13-cell partitioning scheme on a hexagonal grid.
