Build an existing code body that uses make files

Urban Cyborg 21 Reputation points

How can I build an existing non-MS C-language project that uses unix-style makefiles? Specifically, I'm trying to rebuild Alan Holub's code from "Compiler Design in C." The existing files won't run on a 64-bit computer. I imagine VS C++ and VS in general are a bit of overkill, but I can't figure how to make VS C++ recognize the existing make files. BTW, I know the tag I listed isn't right, but the site wouldn't take any meaningful tag, and wouldn't let me go on without a tag; so I punted. ;)

    I suggest you ask in the dedicated forums over here:
