I recently installed the library on my laptop running win98 and MSVC++. You
must follow the instructions exactly. When doing the winConfigure.pl, use
activeperl (do not use indigoperl--as I found it does not extract
correctly.) As for the makefiles, if you are working in msvc++ you may not
need them. MSVC++ provides a utility that exports makefiles for porting to
unix. But if a port to unix is not in your plans, then you don't need them.
I do not know why these makefiles are provided for us for download. A nice
feature of msvc++ is no makefiles.

  Hi,

  It is necessary to download the package with all necessary files for MSVC
(libwww-win32.zip) as described at http://www.w3.org/INSTALL.html#Windows

  Kind regards,

  Vladimir Kozlov.

    Hi,

    I am experimenting with libwww-5.3.2. I try to build it on windows using
MSVC. As the Installation guide says, "you can compile by opening the
libwww/windows/world.dsw workspace and do a batch build of the whole thing."
But there's no world.dsw in my downloaded package. So could you tell me
what's wrong with my step?

    Another thing I don't know how to use the makefiles, could you tell me
what's the use of these makefiles?

    Your help will be appreciated!
