I need the UTF-8 support and I guess I therefore need to compile the C extension. I'm living on Windows right now and haven't done any serious compilation of C stuff ever in Windows. What is recommended setup? I have tried Visual Studio C++ Express 2005 (I think) and added all header-files from the Platform SDK (the first one was missing a number of header files). It starts to compile now but I get errors. What should I do to make it compile? Should I perhaps use MingW? Regards, Marcus A.

Hi Marcus, currently you cann't compile Ferret on Windows. For the moment you are stuck with the all Ruby version on Windows. Dave is working hard to make a Windows version of Ferret in C. So lets hope it will be finished soon. Kind regards, Nick
