    Plugins development

    Hi all!
    I'm researching about C plugins for the GCC compiler. Currently I could not install the liberias necessary for me to work (install on a machine with Windows the gcc with MINGW and in one with MAC the gcc using BREW), but apparently it does not install everything enough to develop plugins.
    Is there any restriction regarding the gcc version, operating system, etc. to be able to develop plugins?


    Thank you!!

    It depends. Some libraries may make use of some GCC-specific functionality that isn't present is older or newer versions, or they could have OS-specific code. Or even they could be using some language feature that is no longer present (variable length arrays, for example, were made "optional" in C11).

    What libraries are you trying to use?

    gcc-plugin.h for example.
