Building libraries during installation of PellesC
« on: April 06, 2016, 04:53:11 pm »
When installing PellesC, libraries are built during installation. I have a question about this. Why are these libraries not included with PellesC or does the installation program configure these libraries based on my own computer settings? In other words, why do libraries need to be built during installation.

I have programmed in C before, but please excuse me as I don't know the more detailed stuff about programming.

Well, what happens during install (well, actually, during first start of the IDE) is that a database of all header files is build, NOT any "libraries". This is for use in the IDE (code hints, etc), you could use the actual compiler/linker perfectly without this.
