    Question Dev C++ 64bit support

    I was searching through dev and I cant find any compiling options to compile 64 bit. Many other operating systems have 64bit support. Am I missing something or dev cant compile 64 bit.

    Dev C++ can't compile anything because it's an IDE. You might have better luck searching to see if the compiler you're using with Dev supports 64-bit (either Cygwin or MinGW I think. It's been a while since I've even looked at Dev C++).

    As Salem said. You will need to install a 64 bit capable compiler. Currently GCC is not 64 bit capable through its MinGW port. You would have to use GCC for linux.

    Currently the only compilers I know of that handle 64 bit code for windows is the Intel C++ Compiler and the Microsoft Visual C++... maybe the new Borland C++ Builder too.

    Oops, sorry mate. Just took a glimpse at the avatar and for some reason it looked Salem's. Sorry 'bout that

    So "DEV" is a "IDE" but uses "GCC" to compile a "DLL". wow.....lol.

    There's some people saying C++ programmers have a thing for acronyms. Lies!
