I'm trying to compile and run the examples for the NI-SCOPE package (https://www.ni.com/pt-br/support/downloads/drivers/download.ni-scope.html#460233). Ideally I would want to use eclipse or a GNU makefile for the projects and don't depend on Visual Studio. So I saw there was a Makefile in there, and after some tries find out that this is a nmake file. I was able to build and run after installing Visual Studio C++ and run nmake as suggested here (https://forums.ni.com/t5/High-Speed-Digitizers/Makefile-error-quot-missing-separator-quot-preventing...). I was also able to build it when creating manually a new project within Visual Studio (https://www.ni.com/docs/en-US/bundle/ni-scope/page/digitizers/creating_an_application_with_visual_c....).
So I want some support if is possible to compile this without the need of nmake/visual studio. I tried to create a project on eclipse using mingw, but it fails when generating the object files. Tried also to create a GNU makefile calling GCC and got to the same error point. I'm not much knowledgeable on C so it might have to do with it too.
Example for the error which is trying to build the common dependency object first (asciiPlot.c, I tried to keep the flags from nmake but there are many I didn't find out what were doing):

Is there anything that is missing here to compile it?
