32 bit GCC revealed

By Chris Williams. Published: 20th Nov 2002, 17:04:19 | Permalink | Printable

Experimental for the moment but it works: a free 26/32 bit neutral C/C++ compiler

32bit coverage on drobe.co.uk Developers of RISC OS software now have a choice of two compilers for producing 26/32 bit neutral code: Castle's tools and as of today, GCC. GCC for RISC OS is a free compiler developed by a team of hardworking programmers and has recently enjoyed a second 2.95.4 release. Peter Naulls has just now pointed out that he's released his unofficial and experimental version of the C/C++ compiler that can build 26/32 bit neutral code.

"Experimental. No support. Enjoy", is all we got out of him. All the information and downloads you need can be found from the link below.

Very exciting, a stable release and then a 32-Bit one within a week, plus DeskLib, does Chocky ever rest?!

It does compile a big hunk of C++ quite quickly in a 32bit environment.

Mm, I've always used GCC and never had any real problems with it.

Typical! I just finished downloading the 26bit version two days ago and haven't even installed it yet :)

Things are going well when you start to find it hard to keep up with developments :)
