Installation Question for libxml & Borland C++ 5 Compiler

P: n/a
Hello,

I have tried many avenues (web search, borland website, libxml
website) before deciding to post here.

I'm trying to install libxml2 on windows ME to work with my Borland
C++ 5 Compiler (command line).

Read through the installation guides from xmlsoft.org.

Downloaded libxml2, libinconv-1.9.1 and zlib.

Followed the instructions for the zlib installation. However, it seems
that libinconv can only be compiled using Microsoft Visual C++. Is
there an alternative method for a Borland C++ 5 (command line) user
like me?

Using the example, tree1.c from xmlsoft and compiling like this, I get
the following errors :
bcc32 -a -c tree1.c Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32 Copyright (c) 1993, 2000 Borland
tree1.c:
Warning W8004 tree1.c 33: 'cur_node' is assigned a value that is never
used in function print_element_names
Warning W8004 tree1.c 54: 'root_element' is assigned a value that is
never used in function main
Warning W8004 tree1.c 53: 'doc' is assigned a value that is never used
in function main
bcc32 tree1.obj zdllbor.lib

In my Borland's bin directory, I have 2 comfiguration files, bcc32.cfg
and ilink32.cfg which have the following lines :

bcc32.cfg -->
-I"c:\prog\Borland\Bcc55\include"
-L"c:\prog\Borland\Bcc55\lib;C:\prog\Borland\BCC55\ Include\libxml"

ilink32.cfg -->
-L"c:\Borland\Bcc55\lib;C:\prog\Borland\BCC55\Inclu de\libxml"

What else must I do in order to get tree1.c to compile cleanly?

Your advise is very much appreciated.

Thank you.
Cheers,
Kenneth Gomez.
