I’m new to the Lich, but not to DSP using C++.
(I’ve written VST plugins and worked on Arduino code, and been programming since forever, so may be a bit of a learning curve)
My aim is to write some stuff for the Lich using C++.
First planned project is to create a “is the Lich working?” patch to troubleshoot all the hardware, and to end up with a documented example to share which will show how to access the hardware from C++ code.
Any help would be much appreciated
I’m on Windows.
I found https://github.com/pingdynasty/OwlProgram (which doesn’t include Lich in it’s list of supported devices) Looks like the right place to be though.
There I find:
“On Windows, you’ll need a MAKE utility . You’ll also need to open compile.mk and point TOOLROOT to your gcc installation directory, using a path string without spaces (such as using 8.3 filenames).”
That leads to a download for MinGW, and the first question.Which packages do I need to install?
(I’ve guessed MSYS for MinGW, Basic MinGW and the C++ option)
I’ve downloaded the code from https://github.com/pingdynasty/OwlProgram#ref7
I’ve seen the recommendation to edit compile.mk (which I’ve found in the downloaded code) .
…and presumably I need to edit the line
so I think # need removing as it means ‘comment’
…but what is “?=” (guess, check for existence and warn if not there)
so following instructions without knowing better that’s
…which looks kind of wrong
so am I right so far, and what do I do next?
I’m thinking compile the CppTest example, but I’m stuck for the next step.
