This was a long journey to this point.
I wanted to take a very small java program and compile it down to native. I wanted this to be for a proprietary program. Ya know..for work.
It seemed feasible due to the LIBGCJ_LICENSE of libgcj. I thought libgcj was the only thing needed to make the final executable.
In order to compile like the following:
gcj --main=Test
which just outputs "Test done", I had to download cygwin with GCC 2.95.x as directed by
It failed compiling/linking until I downloaded iconv stuff too.
On windows 2000, I see cygwin1.dll is needed to run the final executable.
I look at and now realize that I better not try to swim this swamp of legal-stuff. There are too many land mines.
Am I missing something here?
