Installation of T. Newsham's 9P client/server implementation in Python.

Presently I don't have Plan 9 installed on a machine, and am unable to test the upgrade to python3.

test_distutils

See this post.

After writing this patch for use on Windows 10 64bit I realised that 32bit installations
are not allocated for, that considered an IF block might be more appropriate, however
it is beyond the scope of this post to assess the frequency among that OS versions'
users running 32bit releases. Furthermore, as I'm on 64bit I an uninformed whether
VS2017 on 32bit factually has an HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\SxS\VC7
Registry key.

I'll probably subsequent to error resolution merge this content with the vim-notebook post.

A more VS2017 specific solution would be to add a new Registry key pointing to the
'Build' directory, and then modify the _msvccompiler.py file to contain that new key.

As VS2017 has a Registry key as follows

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\SxS\VS7

Value name:
15.0

Value data:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\

copying %VSINSTALLDIR%VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvarsall.bat

to %VSINSTALLDIR%

and modifying Python-3.6.2\Lib\distutils\_msvccompiler.py

- r"Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\SxS\VC7",
+ r"SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\SxS\VS7",

then opening an x64 Native Tools Command Prompt for VS 2017 and running test_distutils
and test_distutils.py (verbose mode) produced the following output.

K95

System: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
CPUs: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270 @1.60GHz

Installing the Individual components for VS2017 as follows
adds a (910 MB) %VCToolsInstallDir%atlmfc directory, and
for that reason I first have pursued building C-Kermit (K95)
on a VS2008 Express installation.

MFC and ATL support (x86 and x64)
Visual C++ ATL support

TODO: see whether afxres.h can be replaced with winresrc.h in cknker.rc

I had a look today at D.R. Goodwin's work on K95.

https://github.com/davidrg/ckwin
ckwin-master.zip

I only built the Console application, and, as one can see from the output XYZMODEM,
SSH, Kerberos, SRP and SSL, have been disabled.

As I was on XP I could safely comment out the following lines in kermit\k95\cknker.rc.

// #define APSTUDIO_READONLY_SYMBOLS
// #include "afxres.h"
// #undef APSTUDIO_READONLY_SYMBOLS

Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 x86 tools.

This post will look at compiling R. Cox's libregexp9, a port
of Plan 9's Unicode-capable regular expression library.

mk-with-libs.tgz

Replace memccpy with _memccpy, write with _write, and unistd.h with io.h, in the libfmt,
libregexp and libutf, subdirectories. You can also add _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS
to your preprocessor definitions so as to suppress certain warnings.

The files from libfmt as test.c, test2.c and test3.c, and from libregexp as test.c and test2.c
were removed before attempting the compile. I can't say at this point of time whether their
removal was the cause of any of the below warnings being output. The mk executable uses
sys/wait.h which likewise to unistd.h is unavailable on visual studio. I can't say at this point
of time if a substitute for the required (for mk) sys/wait.h functions would be able to be found
among the visual studio provided header files.

64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor
Deps: vs_community__1560150700.1495339730.exe,
Setup-Subversion-1.8.17.msi, Python-3.6.1.tar.xz,
vim-master.zip, vim-notebook-master.zip

I'll probably rewrite the python section using version 3.6.2, test_distutils
still fails with that release, but with the 3.6.2 code modifications, test_re
and test_subprocess now pass. Some, not all, of the test_distutils errors
are due to  _msvccompiler.py searching for a non-existent (for VS2017)
Registry key, containing data essentially with the %VCINSTALLDIR%
value , which in former VC releases was the location for vcvarsall.bat.

T. Baruchel's vim-notebook currently only supports Unix-like OSes, which might
include the Win2K-Win8.0 Interix POSIX.1 compliant subsystem, with its mkfifo
utility.

If I have the time I'll look at 2 go implementations of Windows named pipes.

This post currently only provides information on VS2017 compile of Python-3.6.1 and vim80.

Since version 1.2.0 the plugin is compatible with T. Pope's vim-markdown.

Run the above installer as an administrator.

Try Igor Pavlov's 7-Zip (64-bit x64) for extraction.

https://github.com/nurmi-labs/Python-3.6.1
Python-3.6.1-master.zip

From the extracted Python-3.6.1.tar.xz file remove the PC\bdist_wininst and PCbuild
directories, and replace them with those from the unpacked Python-3.6.1-master.zip
file. Then open a Windows Command Prompt as an administrator, CD to PCbuild
and run the get_externals.bat file. It appears that the tcl-core-8.6.6.0 and tk-8.6.6.0
rules.vc files haven't been upgraded since VS2013, so it's premature to add code
(for v141) into tcl.vcxproj, tcltk.props, tix.vcxproj, and tk.vcxproj.

Open in VS the Project/Solution.. file pcbuild.sln, and when the project has been initialized,

Open in VS the Project/Solution.. file pcbuild.sln. When the offer to upgrade tcl, tix and tk,
appears just close that window, these files will register in the Solution Explorer as (Visual
Studio 2015) files, but absent having the Windows SDK 8.1 and the Platform toolset v140,
will compile with the current VS2017 Windows SDK 10.0.15063.0 and Platform toolset v141.

The tcl and tk rules.vc files don't allocate for the _MSC_VER macro's minor version number,
so for example, VS2013 should build those externals in Release_AMD64_VC12 rather than
in Release_AMD64_VC12.0. I think the latter would be a preferable approach to be pursued
regarding an eventual tcl and tk rules.vc file upgrade.

MSVC++ 14.0 _MSC_VER == 1900 (Visual Studio 2015)
MSVC++ 14.1 _MSC_VER == 1910 (Visual Studio 2017)

When the project has been initialized, change the menu's list boxes settings from Debug to
Release and from Win32 to x64, then Build the Solution.

Close the IDE and open a Windows Command Prompt as an administrator.

There are two batch scripts located in the sidebar to add Registry keys,
if you don't want to install the .chm file then don't run help.bat.

NB: The pre-compiled download of python-3.6.1 contains tcl86tg.lib and
tk86tg.lib, that is, static debug libraries, this post omits their compilation.

To compile the PE32+ gvim/vim you'll need a copy of Win32.Mak.

Place this along a parallel directory tree to that of %WindowsSdkDir%.

If you want a console vim.exe start with a freshly extracted vim-master.zip and use
the same command line arguments for the compile as above omitting GUI=yes and
the carets (^), which are for line continuation in batch (.bat) files.

NB: One can't run an 'nmake.exe clean' due to a missing auto\config.h file.
