       winemaker is a perl script designed to help you bootstrap  the  process
       of converting your Windows sources to Winelib programs.

       In order to do this winemaker can perform the following operations:

       -  rename  your  source files and directories to lowercase in the event
       they got all uppercased during the transfer.

       - perform DOS to Unix (CRLF to LF) conversions.

       - scan the include statements and resource file references  to  replace
       the backslashes with forward slashes.

       -  during the above step winemaker will also perform a case insensitive
       search of the referenced file in  the  include  path  and  rewrite  the
       include statement with the right case if necessary.

       -  winemaker will also check other more exotic issues like #pragma pack
       usage, use of afxres.h in non  MFC  projects,  and  more.  Whenever  it
       encounters something out of the ordinary, it will warn you about it.

       - winemaker can also scan a complete directory tree at once, guess what
       are the executables and libraries you are trying to build,  match  them
       with source files, and generate the corresponding Makefile.

       - finally winemaker will generate a global Makefile for normal use.

       -  winemaker knows about MFC-based project and will generate customized

       - winemaker can read existing project  files.  It  supports  dsp,  dsw,
       vcproj and sln files.


              Disable the printing of the banner.

              Perform  a  backup of all the modified source files. This is the

              Do not backup modified source files.

              Do no try to fix the source files (e.g. DOS to Unix conversion).
              This prevents complaints if the files are readonly.

              Rename all files and directories to lowercase.

              Only  rename  files  and  directories that have an all uppercase
              name.  So HELLO.C would be renamed but not World.c.

              Do not rename files and directories to  lower  case.  Note  that
              this  does  not  prevent the renaming of a file if its extension
              cannot be handled as is, e.g. ".Cxx". This is the default.

              When the file corresponding to an include  statement  (or  other
              form  of  file  reference  for  resource files) cannot be found,
              convert that filename to lowercase. This is the default.

              Do not modify the  include  statement  if  the  referenced  file
              cannot be found.

       --guiexe | --windows
              Assume  a  graphical  application when an executable target or a
              target of unknown type is found. This is the default.

       --cuiexe | --console
              Assume a console application when  an  executable  target  or  a
              target of unknown type is found.

       --dll  Assume  a  dll when a target of unknown type is found, i.e. when
              winemaker is unable to determine whether it is an executable,  a
              dll, or a static library,

       --lib  Assume  a static library when a target of unknown type is found,
              i.e. when winemaker is unable to  determine  whether  it  is  an
              executable, a dll, or a static library,

       --mfc  Specify that the targets are MFC based. In such a case winemaker
              adapts the include and library paths accordingly, and links  the
              target with the MFC library.

              Specify that targets are not MFC-based. This option disables use
              of MFC libraries even if winemaker encounters  files  stdafx.cpp
              or  stdafx.h  that would cause it to enable MFC automatically if
              neither --nomfc nor --mfc was specified.

              Add the specified macro definition to the global list  of  macro

       -Idir  Append the specified directory to the global include path.

       -Pdir  Append the specified directory to the global dll path.

       -idll  Add  the Winelib library to the global list of Winelib libraries
              to import.

       -Ldir  Append the specified directory to the global library path.

              Add the specified library to the global  list  of  libraries  to
              link with.

              Do  not  use  the standard set of Winelib libraries for imports.
              That is, any DLL your code uses must be explicitly  passed  with
              -i  options.   The  standard  set  of  libraries is: odbc32.dll,
              odbccp32.dll, ole32.dll, oleaut32.dll and winspool.drv.

              Set some options to tell winegcc not to compile against  msvcrt.
              Use this option if you have cpp-files that include <string>.

              Use  interactive  mode.  In  this mode winemaker will ask you to
              confirm the list of targets for  each  directory,  and  then  to
              provide directory and target specific options.

       --single-target name
              Specify that there is only one target, called name.

              Generate the Makefile. This is the default.

              Do not generate the Makefile.

              Generate  a  32-bit  target.  This  is  useful on wow64 systems.
              Without that option the default architecture is used.


       Here is a typical winemaker use:

       $ winemaker --lower-uppercase -DSTRICT .

       The above tells  winemaker  to  scan  the  current  directory  and  its
       subdirectories  for source files. Whenever if finds a file or directory
       which name is all uppercase, it  should  rename  it  to  lowercase.  It
       should then fix all these source files for compilation with Winelib and
       generate Makefiles.  The -DSTRICT specifies that the STRICT macro  must
       be  set  when  compiling  these  sources.  Finally  a  Makefile will be

       The next step would be:

       $ make

       If at this point you get compilation errors (which is quite likely  for
       a  reasonably  sized  project) then you should consult the Winelib User
       Guide to find tips on how to resolve them.

       For an MFC-based project you would have to run the  following  commands

       $ winemaker --lower-uppercase --mfc .
       $ make

       For  an  existing  project-file  you  would  have  to run the following

       $ winemaker myproject.dsp
       $ make


       In some cases you will have  to  edit  the  Makefile  or  source  files

       Assuming that the windows executable/library is available, we could use
       winedump to determine what kind  of  executable  it  is  (graphical  or
       console),  which  libraries  it  is linked with, and which functions it
       exports (for libraries). We could then restore all these  settings  for
       the corresponding Winelib target.

       Furthermore   winemaker  is  not  very  good  at  finding  the  library
       containing the executable: it must either be in the  current  directory
       or in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

       winemaker does not support message files and the message compiler yet.
