Dev-C++ or MinGW compiler for Windows 32?

Post by Norbert Raimund Leisner » Fri Nov 01, 2013 7:59 pm

Hello together,

which would be for a win32-compile of DiscoCheck 5.0.1 https://github.com/lucasart/chess the best solution?

Dev-C++
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dev-cpp/

MinGW
https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/

I ask you here because Lucas wrote on GitHub:
Compiling it yourself
On Windows, and/or with other compilers (eg. MSVC, ICC), I don't know. So you will have to figure it out. That being said, I have tried hard to write code as portable as possible, but there may be a few things that are GCC specific. If you find something that is not portable and should be rewritten to improve portability, please let me know (patches and pull requests are welcome).

Perhaps you can describe explicitly a step-by-step manual for this case!

Or to say it with French words: "C´est en forgeant qu´on devient forgeron" ~ Practice makes perfect.

Best wishes,
Norbert

Dev-C++ is not compiler but IDE!
