Using libmemcached on a Windows system
I'm brand new to the world of Membase Server so apologies in advance if I ask any stupid questions.
I am working on a C++ windows application where we'd like to make use of memcached, so Membase Server in pure memcached mode seems like a perfect fit. libmemcached seems like the client of choice to use for C++ based applications (it is fully featured, mature and actively developed) but it doesn't seem like there is an easy way to get libmemcached running under Windows. I have started following the instructions here
and have got to the point where I have created a libmemcached-8.dll file. I have also set up a project containing the libmemcached header files to include in my application. The problem I'm having is that I need to link against a static library, not a dynamic link library and I don't have one available. I could attempt to make one following the advice given here
but it seems like a lot of work, and also I don't want to have to do this every time a new version of libmemcached is released.
So, I was wondering if anyone has any advice or ideas on an easier way of working with libmemcached (or any other suitable client library) on a Windows platform.
Many thanks in advance.
