4.4.2 make_win_bin_dist — Package MySQL Distribution as Zip Archive

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 base name 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 to copy them in for you, using copy_def arguments, which have the form relative_dest_name=source_name.



If you specify a directory, the entire directory will be copied.

make_win_bin_dist supports the following options.
