NAME         top

       make_win_bin_dist - package MySQL distribution as ZIP archive

SYNOPSIS         top

       make_win_bin_dist [options] package_basename [copy_def ...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

       •   --debug

           Pack the debug binaries and produce an error if they were not

       •   --embedded

           Pack the embedded server and produce an error if it was not
           built. The default is to pack it if it was built.

       •   --exe-suffix=suffix

           Add a suffix to the basename of the mysql binary. For
           example, a suffix of -abc produces a binary named

       •   --no-debug

           Do not pack the debug binaries even if they were built.

       •   --no-embedded

           Do not pack the embedded server even if it was built.

       •   --only-debug

           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).
