RE: can not compile cscope on cygwin

Please don't send personal e-mails.

It looks like that your cvs tarball wasn't "pluged-in". As I see it, you have two options:

1. Use setup to install cvs on your system, then put the cvs tarball in your cvs repository, and then check out the files. Alternativelly, you could follow instuctions on to get source files and skip cvs tarball completely. Anyway, you'll probably need to consult cvs man pages in order to get through this.

2. You can try to  manually rename files and strip them of change history. Needless to say, it may take while to do this and it may be error prone process -- the experiance you've already had.

Thanks for the reply. I did rerun configure
after installingflex, bison and everything else.

I tried Sunday night's tarball oncvs. I'm not 
sure I followed the correct procedure for building - ifsuch a procedure is well known and
different from the standarddistribution, can
you please point me to it.

The files in thetarball are suffixed with ",v"
and the makefile and the configure file,have
an attached change log that cause a lot of
error messages(possibly noise). But even
the tarball did not build - makeinstantly
gave an error (sorry, I missed copying this one
for the list- but it was something very basic,
like as if the makefile was notwritten properly).
I even tried removing the change log stuff(which
strangely enough did not seem commented), and
rerunning(starting with configure), but to 
no avail.


I remember having similarproblems with 15.5, but cvs version was ok.Now, I haven't tried to build cscope recently, but the last time Itried, the cvs version was building (and working) just fine. 

Did youtry cvs?
