Making wxHatch with Cygwin gcc for MS Windows

I have successfully built  wxhatch with version 2.4.2 of wxWidgets and the Cygwin package, obtained using the Cygwin setup program :
 

1) Build the wxWidgets library if required

  • In the bash shell window, go to the wxWidgets directory, and type
  • Go to the  wxWidgets/contrib/src/stc directory and build the styled text control library by typing
  • This will build the default configuration. For other configurations, see the  wxWidgets installation instructions At present, building a shared libary does not work.
    2) Build wxHatch
    Go to the wxhatch directory. You just need to give configure the relative path to the main wxWidgets directory, eg type
    configure --with-wxWINDIR=../wxWidgets
    make
    If configure cannot find the wxWidgets files, error messages will be generated.
    If you want wxhatch available from the command line use
    make install
    On to using the program
