Question: about the use of mint application with windows


For debbugging big programs, i have been told that one good solution is to use the mint application.

I'm trying to do so that is to say to use the mint application with windows. But, i encounter some difficulties.

The program on which i would like to apply the mint is composed of several parts like in the package Shapes and the different parts of the module are called thanks to the $include syntax.

To test mint, i have launched a command window with the command cmd in windows.

After, i apply cd PathRepertoryContainingMint

On i am located in this repertory, i test the following syntax :
mint -I PathRepertoryContainingTheDifferentFiles PathRepertoryContainingTheMainProgram\program.mpl

In my case these two paths are the same.

I test also the following syntax:

mint -o PathRepertoryContainingTheOuput\mintoutput.mpl PathRepertoryContainingTheMainProgram\program.mpl

It may run but i don't know where i can recover the output of mint

I have been told also to set the Windows PATH variable to include the Maple bin directory (thank you @Joe Riel for this tip). I think that it should be a good idea but I never do this type of manipulation.

On the net, I find that the process to do so is the following : setx path "%path%;c:\directoryPath"


1) If you have some experience in using mint with windows, may you give some tips (precise the right syntax) to use it ? 

2) In case the option -o is not used, where the output of mint is coming ?

I thank you in advance for your help.
