       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 files.

       - 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 default.

              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 definitions.

       -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

       --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 created.

       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

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

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

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

       $ winemaker myproject.dsp
       $ make


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

       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.
