ming on win32 anyone ? [help a noob]

P: n/a
hoping someone can help ...

how do I install ming (with python) on win32? have downloaded the tar.gz
of ming-0.3.0 which doesn't have a handy self-installer, and I'm
absolutely foxed as to what to do next ... the install instructions in
the package seem to be linux oriented, which to me may as well be in greek

any clues much appreciated, thx

I don't know what you've downloaded, but it does not sound like the
right thing, err ming. The installer found here is 5.1.3.

Maybe you should consider cygwin?

I think the OP is referring to this: http://ming.sourceforge.net/

If so, it looks like it needs manual compilation using a C/C++
compiler of some sort.

Maybe you want this one:

http://www.develer.com/oss/GccWinBinaries

Quote from that page:

"""
Unofficial MinGW GCC binaries for Windows

This page contains a friendly installer for GCC 4.1.2 for Windows (native "mingw" win32 version).
It's an unofficial release, not promoted by the MinGW project. It features full Python integration.

yup, ming as in the ability to make swf files ... got it running with
php no problem, but python seems another story ...
manual compilation using c/c++ sounds complicated - is this the sort of
thing i could do without knowledge of c/c++ or am i just barking at
lamp-posts ?

thx
