Re: [cdt-dev] CDT for Windows, launching, and Wascana

I'll repeat the warning with Cygwin. If you distribute anything you make with it, you must GPL your code. The cygwin DLL is GPL, not LGPL.

Wascana is MinGW and select libraries, none of the libraries are GPL, for building Windows applications. I currently have SDL and I am in the middle of frying an egg on my laptop building Qt. Of course, if you followed me on Twitter, you'd know that ;).

I feel like I'm missing something. Last time I checked, I created a C project, built it, hit the debug button,, I was in the debugger with the program stopped at the main() of my program. The only snag was the lack of source with Cygwin, but obviously that's not an issue for Wascana.

This hassle-free workflow was made possible by the context-sensitive launch logic that you and Darin worked on. So, what am I missing? Where is the opportunity for improvement? The only thing I can think of is the fact that gdb had to be in the PATH, but Doug is apparently already focused on addressing that.

In the next couple weeks I want to start looking at the out of the box launch experience for someone who downloads CDT for Windows.

There has been some discussion about this and a few relevant bugs but I'd like to step back and look at it fresh from start to finish.

So my first question is, what's the status of Wascana? I'm planning to skip over the issue of how people who download CDT for Windows get Wascana, assuming we'll tackle that separately. So since it sounds like you have been doing some new work on Wascana I wanted to see if there is there a new update site I can pull it from?

Thanks - Ken
