I have recently stumbled into some problems compiling PD externals. I figured I would post here, it's a two part question
Compiling on/for Windows:
The first, and likely easier question, is I am trying to compile this external for the ES-5 encoder provided by Expert Sleepers for their DC coupled Eurorack interface:
However, when I attempted to run the makefile I am encountering numerous errors that lead me to believe my environment isn't setup for compiling PD externals. Is there somewhere that outlines how to compile an external like this where there is limited/no documentation in the README? I don't know how generic of a process it is and if it's fairly standardized.
I have a library that I would like to use with PDParty (iemmatrix) and I need to compile this into a static library to be able to use it on iOS. Is compiling to a static library drastically different than to a dynamic one? Are there limitations design wise that particular libraries might be incompatible with?
Sorry if the wording here is confusing at all. I haven't dealt much with compiling libraries for different platforms so I am a bit lost on some of the basics.
Any help, as always, is greatly appreciated
