libdmtx on Windows Using Cygwin

1. Installing libdmtx on Cygwin

libdmtx can be installed on Cygwin using the General Instructions. However, please see below for additional details that might benefit users on this platform.

2. Dependencies

The following packages must be installed to compile libdmtx on Cygwin:

gcc
make
automake
pkg-config

Also, if libdmtx was obtained from Subversion:

autoconf
libtool

Also, if compiling dmtxread and/or dmtxwrite:

libSM-devel
libXt-devel
ImageMagick
libMagick-devel

If you only want the core library and don't care about command line utilities, you can disable dmtxread and dmtxwrite to avoid the ImageMagick dependency. To do this, run the libdmtx configure step with the following parameters:

$ ./configure --disable-dmtxread --disable-dmtxwrite
$ make
$ sudo make install

3. Anything Else?
