How to build a Windows DLL with cygwin

Jose Isaias Cabrera-4


I have been a Cygwin user since its infancy, and I have been looking for a way to build SQLite Windows DLL with Cygwin, and I just found how to do this. I know I can use MinGW, which is the way I was doing it, but if you have Cygwin, you can just follow this steps:

  1.  use your setup to get the basic MinGW Cygwin libraries and utilities
Install mingw64-i686-gcc-core 7.4.0-1
Install mingw64-i686-gcc-g++ 7.4.0-1
or the 64 bit version, if you are going to build the 64b.

  2.  download the sqlite3 amalgation[1]
  3.  untar
  4.   run this command,
jcabrera@elimelec ~/builds/sqlite/sqlite-snapshot-201905242258
$ i686-w64-mingw32-gcc -shared -static-libgcc sqlite3.c -o sqlite3.dll​

jcabrera@elimelec ~/builds/sqlite/sqlite-snapshot-201905242258
$ ls -l sqlite3.dll​
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jcabrera None 1.1M Jun 10 22:38 sqlite3.dll*​

And that's it.  Just thought I'd share this for the Cygwin users.  Thanks.
