Hi,
I am trying to get the source of Mozilla web browser, but I have a some issues.
1. I am new to OSS.
2. I have limited memory in my PC so I am planning to checkout one version of code and write it in a CD and read from my PC.
3. I am using Windows.

so can anyone please guide me how I can accomplish getting code in a CD with all the above constraints.

Thanks
Kashyap

You can find the source, and lots of development information, here. If your hard disk isn't big enough to hold all the source code, then you'll most likely not get it compiled, though (the binaries take up space, too). Compiling from a CD will in any case be very slow.
 
You learn how to close your eyes and tell yourself "this just isn't really happening to me." Tiny ad:
