I have followed the INSTALL.TXT instructions to build Source Navigator
version 5.0 on Windows 2000 using Visual Studio version 6. Here are some

1) I was able to build the product by following the instructions. The hints
about the configure script were particularly useful.

2) The make files are currently configured for a debug build. The CFLAGS
provided will write debugging information into the .OBJ and .EXE files
("-Z7" option) and disable code optimisation ("-Od" option).

To configure the compiler for a release build, remove the "-Z7" option,
change the optimisation option to "-Ox" for full optimisation, and add the
"-Gi-" option to disable incremental compilation which can bloat the object

To configure the linker for a release build, remove the "-DEBUG" option, and
add the "-INCREMENTAL:NO" option to disable incremental linking.

3) The CFLAGS compiler options are only recognised when the first letter is
specified in uppercase.

4) The Microsoft linker does not understand the "-Z7", "-Od" and "-lm"

Hope this helps,
David Robinson
