The simplest way to use it is to point it at an existing Linux binary, and then read the generated report.
What it does in more detail: It looks at the libraries and API calls used by the Linux binary, and compares them to the libraries and API calls that we currently support under the Fedora MinGW cross-compiler. It then works out what is missing, and produces a report suggesting the amount of work that needs to be done to port the program. For example, whether whole libraries need to be ported first, and/or how to substitute individual calls to work on Windows.
CrossReport is a tool which developers can run against their Linux binaries, which analyzes the APIs those binaries are using, and estimates how difficult it will be to cross-compile the binaries for Windows (using Fedora MinGW). This tool was written by Richard W.M. Jones (email@example.com). Use 'mingw32-crossreport --help' for instructions, or read the man page. Use 'update-crossreport-db.pl more»
