Is there anything wrong with using gcc/mingw for plugins?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to learn how to use gcc/mingw on my system and successfully built the plug-in sdk example. I was wondering if there was anything wrong with using mingw for plug-ins, such as there being some sort of system incompatibility, etc.

For those interested, install mingw, use the following to set your path (adapt if directory is different)

set Path=c:\MinGw\bin;%Path%

put the example.c in the au3_plugin_sdk directory, then use the following commands to build the dll in the same directory:

gcc -c -DBUILD_DLL au3plugin.c
gcc -c -DBUILD_DLL example.c
gcc -Wall -shared -o example.dll example.o au3plugin.o

I've read that mingw uses its own windows header, but I have no idea if that means conflict with AutoIt or if that fact is relatively meaningless in this context.

Also, is there anything wrong with the way I built the plugin dll?

Thank you :) I'm finding that the process is much less mystifying when I have to explicitly go through each .c file and compile the .o and then include it by hand to get my dll.
