    Question Best Place to Post My Question


    I'm just trying to compile a program from source and have hit my limits. It is written in fortran and C with dependencies on X11 for output. I've tried compiling it, but honestly all I care about is a working executable.

    Should I ask for help in the "Other Programming Languages" forum or put it in the "Help Wanted" section?

    There's no instructions for this program? What are the errors?

    There are, but unfortunately the code has been hashed together to the point it's not really clear, or at least to me. I realize I should add that I can compile it for Linux, just not Win32.

    I'm trying to compile Xfoil 6.97 for Windows (A Google search will find it, since I can't post links)

    Cross-Compiling from Source for Win32


    I've installed MinGW and XportMinGW in an attempt at cross-compiling, and while it will compile and run the console, it fails at opening a display window to plot the results. Ideally, I would like it compiled natively ala Verison 6.96.
