What Compiler Does Autoit Use?

6 posts in this topic

What programming language is autoit written in? I just wanted to know. Maybe a better way to ask is what compiler is used? I know it is written in C++.

I think most of the developers use VC 7. However, I think Jon still compiles the releases with VC 6 because it is slightly smaller in size. Jon has also said it should compile on MingW, although I've never tested it with that compiler.

Another question about VC7. It can produce .exe that don't require the .NET framework? If so, I had no idea cause I hate virtual machines. (Sorry if I step on anyones feet, it is just my opinion)

Thanks

The .NET is just a name. It still functions as just a regular ole C++ compiler. It does have new options and crap to build .NET stuff with managed extensions and all that bullplop, but it can still build C++ stuff, too. Supposedly it's a very standards complient compiler for C++, too.

And now I KNOW Larry's trying to mess with my head. :whistle:

Edit: And I don't drink at all, thank you very much. Maybe you're the one who's drinking? Hmm...

VC7 seems to produce smaller native exes than VC6 but after upx compression the VC6 are usually 3KB smaller. I do all my writing in VC7 and then just the final release compile with VC6.

It did compile on Mingw but I broke something in the last couple of release by using some #define that wasn't in the MingW includes. It will work again eventually :whistle:
