    Exclamation Diffrent Builds ?!?!

    Win32 Debug
    Win32 Release
    Win32
    Final

    What are the diffrences for these. I am reviewing for a C++ final and can't find this in my book.

    I know one of them is a build that does not contain any debugging information, and one is the when you first make a project and complile it.

    I think final is the one that does not contain any compile information and release is the one when you first compile a new project/program. Is this rt ?

    Thanks

    Win32 DEBUG is the one that contains debug info.

    Win32 RELEASE doesn't contain debug info, released to the public.

    I guess Win32 final is the same as Win32 release.

    Debug and release come as standard (the IDE always creates them), but there is no reason why you can't invent your own to mean whatever you want.

    So final suggests a final (to the customer) build, perhaps with everything rebuilt from scratch and serial number / registration build-in
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
