Title: Compiling CB with CB
Post by: tigerbeard on September 24, 2018, 07:58:43 pm
None of the wiki instructions note that CB could be compiled using its own *.cbt project.

I wonder if that would be considered as the best way to do it anyway? As long as any distribution (Linux) or Windows provides an easy way to install an old version, it should be able to compile it.
Maybe the reason is that most effort is setting up wxWidgets - where there is no *.cbt project.

There is no effort if you know what you're doing.
The cbp files are only for development of codeblocks. For installation the autotools or package generation files are better.

Right, it wouldn't install it, of course.
