Question

Getting GD library


I'm running Apache 1.3.26, php 4.1.1 on Win2k (local testing and development) and I'm wanting to know where I can get a Windows binary of GD. I have downloaded the source, but I don't have or know how to use a compiler.

Thanks in advance

Isn't it in extensions folder by default on windows? So just edit php.ini and uncomment that line with gd

I know this doesn't have much to do with your question but I think any GD lib beyond v1.62 doesn't support the 'gif' extension.

That is true. I believe it's because you have to pay a license if your software creates gif files.

Thanks, AlCapone_yg, I didn't think of looking there...

I uncommented the line, but got an error that the module php_gd.dll couldnt be found, and after messing around in the php.ini file, I found the line that tells it where the extensions directory was. It was originally ./ and I had to replace it with extensions/ and it works fine now.
