i love how the standard unix ./configure shit checks the size of every c type and that somze std functions exist because you have no guarantee that types even mean anything. it's a normal (unspecified) programming (unspecified) language (unspecified)
i'm compiling 'qt5 mingw static' and if you have any idea what it is you're probably screaming right now
happily surprised that there's an aur package for this. i'm installing it in a vm because it's a million build packages
all of this to build one (1) .exe that doesn't require 15 .dll around it
@CobaltVelvet@octodon.social I love how people have configure scripts that check that there is a definition for uint32_t and define it themselves if there isn't but then the people assume that sizeof(int) == 4 and stuff like that
@CobaltVelvet i swear all the times i've ever attempted to get a 'theoretically supported' build for windows to work, i have ground to a halt when the build instructions mention that i must personally create files with names resembling "vavarsall.bat.sh.x64_STATIC.dll.ld" and "msys-64-32-mingw-clang.Makefile-generator.py"
@CobaltVelvet C is a programming language for number crunching code that runs on the one specific machine you intend to run it on, as a backup in case you forgot Fortran exists.
