     30FILE: packages/xlhtml/xlhtml-0.4.9.0-gs.tar.gz
     31(Contains original source code + windows-specific makefiles)
     32
     33The xlhtml package now provides the code to produce the binaries
     34ppthtml and xlhtml to convert from powerpoint to html and excel to
     35html.
     36
     37For a little while we tried a later version of xlhtml (0.5) but went
     38back to 0.4.9.0, including the necessary modifications, since it was a
     39bit hard to set up v0.5 for compiling on Linux.
     40
     41
     42OTHER AFFECTED FILES INCLUDE:
     43- main/trunk/binaries/windows/bin: the xlthml.exe and ppthtml.exe
     44- main/trunk/greenstone2/build-src/win32.mak
     45- main/trunk/greenstone2/build-src/packages/configure
     46- main/trunk/greenstone2/build-src/packages/Makefile.in and Makefile

     53Revision 22107, 301.3 KB (checked in by kjdon, 2 months ago)
     54
     55Added windows makefiles. Had to comment out a little bit of code in
     56xlhtml.c and ppthtml.c that used dir.h - this is no longer
     57available. The code was getting the drive letter from the filename,
     58then setting the default drive to that letter.
     59
     60
     612. TEMPORARY SHIFT TO xlhtml 0.5 (required too much effort modifying
     62Linux configure and makefiles to get this to readily configure and
     63compile from source code, so later we would shift a step back to
     64xlhtml.0.4.9.0:

     70Dr Bainbridge got xlhtml (including ppthtml) compiling on XP
     71again. The executables work on Vista, Windows7 and XP.

     77
     781. Undoing commit of xlhtml-0.5 from yesterday and this morning since
     79   its Makefiles are entirely different (from 2005 and use automak
     80   command and depcomp files regularly).
     81
     822. Replaced this with previously used xlhtml-0.4.9.0, but with all the
     83   changes made to xlhtml-0.5 (to get that compiling and running on
     84   Windows XP, Vista, Win7) ported into here.
     85
     863. This xlhtml-0.4.9.0-gs.tar.gz file has been tested to work on
     87   Vista, XP, Win7 (both executables and compilation). And it has also
     88   been tested to compile and run on Linux.

     126Message:
     1271. In version xlhtml-0.5, there's a Makefile.am which needs depcomp to
     128   be generated which is done by making configure call: automake -a
     129   -c.
     130
     1312. In Makefile.in and Makefile, needed to update the references to
     132   xlhtml.0.4.9 to refer to xlhtml-0.5 instead, just as was done with
     133   configure in the previous commit.

     173Reverting to use xlhtml-0.4.9.0 which has now got all the changes that were made for xlhtml.0.5 (v.0.5 needs depcomp and uses lots of automak(e) calls to compile files on Linux).
