To compile using Visual Studio 2013 commandline:
msbuild micropython.vcxproj
To run on Linux using Wine:
Default build (MICROPY_USE_READLINE=1) uses extended Windows console
functions and thus should be run using "wineconsole" tool. Depending
on Wine build configuration, you may also want to select curses backend
which has look&feel of a standard Unix console:
wineconsole --backend=curses ./micropython.exe
For more info, see https://www.winehq.org/docs/wineusr-guide/cui-programs
If built without line editing and history capabilities
(MICROPY_USE_READLINE=0), the resulting binary can be built using standard
"wine" tool.
