I managed to install Cygwin and gcc, so I can compile our very large and irregularly structured C++ project here on the PC before I port it to Solaris when the hardware is ready.
Now someone tell me an easy way to generate a makefile (which does not involve typing in 3000 filenames). Can I use the vssscc files made by Visual SourceSafe? There is an automake, but as far as I can see it wants me to do all the work.
I checked out a lot of sites that tell you how to do it. Every one tells a different story. If I just type automake I get a lot of helpful comments about things to try in, but there must be a quicker way than this...

After pondering autohell for a few hours I realise I am going to have to type in all those file names after all. Well, copy and paste them.
Since we are going to use Eclipse on the Solaris machine anyway, maybe I should just install Eclipse here on my PC and stop messing about. OK, download a nice new Eclipse...
