How do I download qb64 from the repository
« on: March 18, 2013, 02:51:04 AM »
I was trying to download the updated qb64 from the repository, how do I do this.

please help, thank you

oooooops, did a little more searching and found that there was a video made on how to do this.

I guess I should do a little more searching before posting for help.

Instructions for compiling QB64[GL] in Windows

1.  Download TortoiseHG from Tortoise and install it.
    This will create the tortoiseHG Shell in Windows
2.  Re-start the computer
3.  Make a folder to contain the Qb64[gl] source code
    I use \msys\home\barry\qb64
    As I compile other programs and like to keep all the work files together
4.  Change to this folder
    Right click in the folder to bring up the shell menu
    Click on "tortoiseHG" and then on "clone"
    A window will appear with three entry boxes
    In the top one enter the url  https://code.google.com/p/qb64
    In the second window enter the folder where you will keep the code
    Then click on clone
5.  The source will download into a folder .hg
    This may take some time as there is a lot of data.
    When the download is complete the source will be expanded into your chosen folder.
    Well not quite you still need to expand the compressed compiler.
6.  Change folders (cd) to internal/c/c_compiler
    Expand the 7zip file  c_compiler.7z into the c_compiler folder
7.  Run the setup_win.bat
    The program will compile in a short time and then launch.

I'm still waiting for Galleon to make it available for broad consumption.
