CodeWarrior Projects - Mac vs Windows

I’m doing some work with CodeWarrior for Windows, and I’ve had to do a
little tweaking of the projects to get things to compile. Now that I’ve
got things working, I am faced with the prospect of merging those changes
back into the project files distributed with SDL.

Given that the project files are opaque binaries, merging changes into
them is nasty, so the easiest route is to have separate CodeWarrior
project files for the Windows side of things. This is made even more
reasonable if we assume that the CodeWarrior projects distributed with
SDL are intended for the Mac, with cross-compiling for Windows a bonus.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Oh-- I’ve also set up CodeWarrior project files for a couple of other
projects, such as zlib, libpng, SDL_image, freetype. Anyone have any
idea as to how receptive these other projects would be to submissions of
something as goofy as CodeWarrior project files?

Does Code Warrior have its own compiler or does it rely on GCC or any other
compiler?

I have never tried it. I wanted to download a trial version, but there is
none.

They have their own in-house compilers.

I have never tried it. I wanted to download a trial version, but there
is
none.

I think if you call them or email they might send you a 30-day
evaluation (I have an evaluation disc, but I didn’t get it from them
directly). CodeWarrior is too big for download these days. However, with
120MB shareware games 400MB isn’t too far off ;-)On Friday, April 26, 2002, at 11:00 AM, Lars Laukamm wrote:

Alias Wavefront offer the “Maya Personal Learning Edition” for download on
their website.
Mandrake has 3 CDs, Visual Studio Service Packs are more than 100 MB.
1.8 GB are perfectly acceptable via a DSL connection :slight_smile:

You may be able to export the projects as xml and get a reasonable merge
that way. If the projects still work in CW 5, we can overwrite the old
ones with the new. If neither works, I see nothing wrong with separate
projects for the newer version of CodeWarrior.

We could also distribute the projects as xml. That way, you have one set
of projects that CW 5,6,7 can import, and it’s easier to apply patches
in the future. We might also avoid nasty project conversion issues.
Though upwards conversion always seems to work well, downwards is
troublesome and xml might help this a lot.

Sam Lantinga will accept your projects for SDL_image. I don’t know about
the others.On Friday, April 26, 2002, at 10:39 AM, Roy Wood wrote:
