Thanks for the help but I still need more help. I downloaded
TortoiseSVN so I could use the svn diff command on the command prompt.
and went to the directory labeled c:\
Lib\curl-7.34.0-devel-mingw64\samples and I then typed svn diff -r 41 but it didn't work and returned the error "svn: E155007:
'c:\ Lib\curl-7.34.0-devel-mingw64\samples\' is not a
working copy. Do you know what I'm doing wrong. Under this particular
directory there are two files similar to namely Makefile of
type file and Makefile.m32 of type M32 file. There is no
anywhere to be found looking in the upper directories and if instead I
substituted Makefile for I get the same error message (same
is true for Makefile.m32). I'm assuming I'm doing something very stupid
on my end, but I never have used TortoiseSVN before and I've only been
programming for a few years self taught from a tutorial online. Any
further help would be appreciated.

There is an error in the Windows build system as shipped. If you are
using the "" file to build the libraries, it does not assign
the variable "RTLIBCFG" that is expected by "". Here
how I modified it:

C:\libcurl>svn diff -r 41
--- (revision 41)
+++ (working copy)
@@ -190,6 +190,7 @@

         @SET USE_IDN=$(USE_IDN)
         @SET USE_IPV6=$(USE_IPV6)
         @SET USE_SSPI=$(USE_SSPI)

If you don't do this (or otherwise coerce -DSTATIC_LIB during
compilation), then the libraries will be built for dynamic linking and
your code will not run unless it can find the dynamic libraries.

And yes, I should formally log this as a bug but I've been busy...
