This script is used on Windows after building a MySQL distribution
from source to create executable programs. It packages the binaries
and support files into a ZIP archive that can be unpacked at the
location where you want to install MySQL.
make_win_bin_dist is a shell script, so you must have Cygwin
installed to use it.
This program´s use is subject to change. Currently, you invoke it as
follows from the root directory of your source distribution:
shell> make_win_bin_dist [options] package_basename[copy_def...]
The package_basename argument provides the basename for the resulting
ZIP archive. This name will be the name of the directory that results
from unpacking the archive.
Because you might want to include files of directories from other
builds, you can instruct this script do copy them in for you, via
copy_def arguments, which of which is of the form
If you specify a directory, the entire directory will be copied.
make_win_bin_dist supports the following options.
Pack the debug binaries and produce an error if they were not
Pack the embedded server and produce an error if it was not
built. The default is to pack it if it was built.
Add a suffix to the basename of the mysql binary. For example, a
suffix of -abc produces a binary named mysqld-abc.exe.
Do not pack the debug binaries even if they were built.
Do not pack the embedded server even if it was built.
Use this option when the target for this build was Debug, and you
just want to replace the normal binaries with debug versions
(that is, do not use separate debug directories).
