RE: RE: ssl static libs for windows.

The perl scripts from OpenSSL don't work well on windows, IIRC. I
believe I always had to adjust them somewhat, even under MinGW.

I know it's possible to build under MSVC (I've done it, but it's
been a while). Whether it was straightforward or not I don't recall.

Mingw32 is free. Check out Whether or not it's

Yes, I already tried to make those static libs myself, I'm having a lot of
problems activating the scripts supplied by openssl. I do have perl,
( version 4) DO I need to update it?
any how the sources of openssl are not coming with a clear context
information so I'm not sure hoe to make the workspace for each library.
The Win32/Mingw32 compiler that you have mentioned -
is it a free and user friendly?
