Compile BRL-CAD with Dev-C++
completed by: ofnlut_
mentors: Jacob B, Harmanpreet
BRL-CAD builds pervasively on a number of different operating systems, hardware, and compilers. We actively seek out new compilation environments and like to get them working as best as we can. We regularly build with Microsoft Visual Studio (the professional one you have to pay for), GCC, and a number of other compilers. One we have not tested in a long time is Bloodshed Software's Dev-C++ IDE (available for Windows, based on Mingw)
This task involves attempting to compile BRL-CAD using the Dev-C++ IDE. You'll need to have access to Windows and download our source code, CMake, and Dev-C++. Compile BRL-CAD using Dev-C++ and keep notes of everything you do along the way. You'll report back any failures and otherwise document all the steps you take. Submit a complete build log and your notes documenting everything you did.
We can create follow-on tasks if you make any fixes that get it working.
