Installing ECL on win32

I describing here how to get, build and setup fresh version of ECL from git repository on MS windows 32bit


You will need
  • Some version of visual studio (2005, 2008 or 2010. I haven't played with 2011 yet)
  • git client for windows
  • nasm or yasm if you want to build GMP for modern processors

Getting sources

It`s easy - just run
git clone git://ecls.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ecls/ecl
in some work directory


cd to msvc sub-dir and edit Makefile. You need to decide if you want to support for modern processors for GMP - p3 or p4 for GMP_TYPE option. In this case patch also msvc\gmp\Makefile for rule .asm.obj - put full path to your nasm/yasm executable to it.
If your processor supports SSE2 you can also add to msvc\Makefile string
If you need 64bit integers - you can apply my patch

Run Programs -> Your Visual Studio -> Visual Studio Tools -> Visual Studio Command Prompt. This command gives you console with properly configured environment for calling nmake. cd to ecl\msvc sub-dir and run


In the same sub-dir msvc just run
nmake install prefix=c:\dir\2\install\ecl

After installing you can run
nmake clean
to kill all temporary files used for building


I strictly recommend to download this pre-builded packages for ecl and exract it in directory containing your ecl installation. Then you have to add two new directories to PATH system variable
  • directory in which ecl was installed
  • sub-dir packages\bin
Now you need to create your personal ecl startup file. Usually it must be located somewhere in user home directory (something like c:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%. You can also try cd to %HOMEPATH%) and has name .ecl.lisp

    (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :cl-2d))

You must change *subdir-search-registry* var value in this example to your actual directory with packages
Now you can use one of the following commands to load its respective library immediately after starting the ecl:


Big thanks to Greg Santucci for his .ecl.lisp sample !
