Title: Adding support for some more compilers...
Post by: stardust on February 02, 2007, 03:46:42 pm
Hi there,

as I am planing to add support fore some more compiles to C::B, I have some questions:

So I hope I am not completely off topic.

I 'd suggest you wait for the new framework (I don't have any timeframe to give you though).

Yes, reviewing and adding patches will take time...

To be more concrete. The very implementation I will do on my own. I do not expect anyone to do my work for me ...;-)

I will then, of course, translate the stuff into XML if time is ready. At this point it's rather the question how much participation is desired and if all this fits the focus of C::B.

It's called "cf". But I believe it's quite out-dated. Dunno if Thomas did some more work on that and hasn't committed yet...

Please add Orcas support, it isn't very difficult to do I think?

I hate to bring up an old thread, but I am being forced (work ;)) to code with eMbedded C++, which I have to download a very old IDE and Compiler. 4.0 is the most recent version on M$'s website. Is anyone looking to include eMbedded C++ as an option for C::B?

Thanks,
JS

Rather than extending C::B for every compiler, is it possible to include a way to allow users to define their own compilers?

Guys,

adding a compiler is not really difficult. Just take one look into the code in the compiler plugin (basically one *.cpp/*.h file per compiler). Try to adjust for your compiler and submit a patch. We cannot add support for compiler we don't know. This can be done at best by "experts" using these compilers. Everything else would definitley be error prone.

For the embedeed C++ stuff I'd say start with the visual toolkit compiler. For the others I don't know as I don't know them.

With regards, Morten.
