before running make.
2. You may want to read
http://users.skynet.be/antoine.mechelynck/vim/compile.htm (but find out
for yourself how src/Make_ming.mak differs from src/Make_cyg.mak -- the
principles ought to be quite similar but some details may differ).
3. Where bash uses
you can achieve the same in Vim with
:let $NAME = 'value'
4. Any external program can be run with
or (if you want the output in a buffer)
; in addition, instead of
at the bash prompt, you can use
in Vim (and see the results in quickfix if your compiler is set
