It can be used on windows and unix platforms and with several languages including c/c++, java, ruby and some more.
Compiled files will end up in build-win32, build-linux2 etc. depending on your chosen targetplatform.
On windows you have the option of using Visual Studio for building, see below.
The source zip-File contains both source code for "particle32.dll" and some sample applications located in the tools subdirectory.
You may compile all projects by opening the "libparticle.dsw" in Visual Studio 6 or "libparticle.sln" in Visual Studio .NET. Make a batch build to compile all necessary files. The DLL "particle32.dll" will then be compiled as Debug and Release version and can be found in the corresponding directory.
NOTICE: If you would like to start the sample applications inside Visual Studio you have to set your working directory for these projects according to the location of the compiled particle32.dll. For most cases simply set Project -> Settings -> libparticle32 -> Debug -> General -> Working Directory to "..\libparticle\Debug".
To run the sample applicatons outside the Visual Studio Debugging Environment you have ensure that "particle32.dll" resides in your PATH. The most simple way to guarantee this is to copy "particle32.dll" in the EXEs directory or to the Windows system directory.
