Difference between the three installers
« on: April 02, 2015, 01:47:21 am »
is the mingw sub-directory inside the main code::blocks directory the only difference between the installer? if I ended up using a completely different compiler does it matter if I use the 4.7.1 or 4.8.1 TDM installer?

on that note. what's a good c++11 compiler? 4.8.1 seems to only have partial implementation as stoi doesn't work.

What three installers? What tool? What platform? Mind giving us a little more information if you expect an answer?

Unrelated to C::B so this question does not belong here. Anyways: I am using TDM 4.9.2 which works quite well.

Well its written directly below:

NOTE: The codeblocks-13.12mingw-setup.exe file includes the GCC compiler and GDB debugger from TDM-GCC (version 4.7.1, 32 bit). The codeblocks-13.12mingw-setup-TDM-GCC-481.exe file includes the TDM-GCC compiler, version 4.8.1, 32 bit. While v4.7.1 is rock-solid (we use it to compile C::B), v4.8.1 is provided for convenience, there are some known bugs with this version related to the compilation of Code::Blocks itself.
What compiler you should use depends on what you have in mind. Try with GCC TDM v4.8.1 (v4.9.2 is the current version) if you want to use one of the installers and GCC compilers. However, C::B also supports many other compilers, so make the decision based on your project needs.
