Hi Maz!

I don't think the version matters -- the code is the same (at least
for the 1.13.3 version I had downloaded).  There may have been
some different batch files or shell scripts in the .zip vs. the tar.gz,
but the code itself was the same.

Which specific compiler are you using?  You had mentioned
CodeBlocks.  I think people often use it with gcc, but that it works
with a number of compilers.

I just used (64-bit) mingw-w64 with command-line (no IDE)
mingw32-make (Yes, the version of make that comes with the
mingw-w64 toolchain is call mingw32-make.) to drive mingw-w64's
g++ and ar.

I would say just start compiling, and with the exception of the two
issues I mentioned before, just make the obvious one-line patches
as they come up.

Happy QuickFIX Hacking!

Hello Maz!

As an aside, you can also work off the windows version.  The windows
and unix versions are almost the same, and the core code, I believe,
is identical.  (Windows / unix differences are packaged in ifdef's.)

I never downloaded (or used) quickfix-logviewer.  (I only downloaded
quickfix-1.13.3.zip and quickfix-1.13.3.tar.gz.)

I believe that the third-party windows programs 7-zip and winrar will both
handle tar.gz.  (I think you can also get windows versions of tar and gzip,
but I haven't done that.)

Again, you don't need quickfix-logviewer to build and run the core QuickFIX
code, but it could be a nice utility to have.


Good luck.
