getting started with development of code::blocks.
« on: September 08, 2005, 09:40:48 am »
Hi All,

First of all, I would like to say "hi" to everyone here.
I have just joined this group and would like to get started with development of code::blocks.

Are there any docs that describe how to build code::blocks on windows?
Also, any docs that help to understand the design of code::blocks will also help.

Thanks
Sanjiv

Hi and welcome :)

Your first stop should be the wiki. Then come back here with more questions :P
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Thanks.

I am done with the first step. I could easily and successfully build code::blocks on windows today.  :D

to learn the design of C::B you could start making a plugin. By doing this you can learn how the SDK is working.
Or you can read the sourcecode and try to understand it :P
OS: winXP
Compiler: mingw
IDE: Code::Blocks SVN WX: 2.8.4 Wish list: faster code completion, easier debugging, refactoring

After building c::b I tried to debugging it with gdb from within the c::b.
It says the application failed to initialize, when I try to run the src target.

Are there any tips on how to debug c::b ?
Is there any thing wrong with the build?

You need to run "update.bat", too. Also, if you want to debug Code::Blocks inside itself, you need to turn off the single instance check in the environment options.
