Subject Re: Strategy for Harmony to work with Visual Studio 2005?
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2006 17:25:27 GMT
This particular mail (by Gregory) contains

(a) a link to another mail (of his) describing how to
get the MSFT tools to work, and
(b) a link to a JIRA issue containing the necessary
patches to use NASM for assembly:

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-harmony-dev/200606.mbox/%3c200606270155.23051.gshimansky@gmail.com%3e

Some particulars may be slightly different from one
machine to the next, but in general this works; we
need to get this info in the wiki IMHO.
