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

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
