Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] doc: fix helloworld build on Windows
Date: Mon, 20 May 2019 11:19:52 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Adham Masarwah <>

The option -Dexamples=helloworld is missing.
The helloworld binary name was wrong.
Forcing clang may be required in some environments.

Fixes: 196c650b8b63 ("doc: add guide for Windows")
