So I’m working on creating an msi installer using NSIS for Cmdstan.
One of the things I’m trying to do is to make the process happen within the Powershell terminal.
One of the nice things about the Windows 10 Powershell is that curl and tar come with the powershell
so I’ve been using them to help grab cmdstan from the latest release page and untar it into a directory.
The next thing I need to do is use make to build out cmdstan and
the command I’m using is
make -j2 build
The result I get in the Powershell terminal is
stan/lib/stan_math/make/libraries:83: *** Recursive variable `findfiles’ references itself (eventually). Stop.
I’m reaching to see if there’s something I’m forgetting to do or if there’s a specific version of Make I’m supposed to use.
Also, I’m trying to not use Rtools to do this.
Thanks again and any feedback is much appreciated and welcome.
