Re: RISC OS C Development Tutorial Series

So the overhead is around 20 kB. That's OK for me for a Posix layer.
I prefer not to imagine the overhead of static linking under Linux :)

Re: RISC OS C Development Tutorial Series

Nota: UnixLib is the default choice for GCC. When going to Wimp, the switch to OSLib (as James did) is the natural direction, IMHO. BTW, James, feel free to apply to this: https://www.riscos.fr/concours.html

Re: RISC OS C Development Tutorial Series

Seems to be a lot of confusion here. Yes, GCC generates ELF. But yes, there is a tool to convert ELF to AIF. Only if you staticaly link the application, that requires a much larger WimpSlot when compiling (at least 96MB instead of just 16MB) Last time I tried, I did not see any overhead for the comp...

Re: RISC OS C Development Tutorial Series

This will produce AIF format programs
This part should not be a problem, as I believe tools are present to convert elf to aif.

You decompress it on your disc, then you remove the old content in root directory and put the new one instead. This is the beauty of RISC OS: Install an application = copy it on disc. Install the base OS = decompress a simple zip on disc. Everything is included by default to make vector drawings, bi...
