Hello

Just wondering how I can recompile Dev-Cpp (Bloodshed Software - Dev-C++) for Mac (OS X Leopard 10.5.4).

I have tried other IDEs, but they just don't do it for me.

I've tried WINE (DarWINE). It works on it... but not as well as I'd hoped. So what I would like to do is recompile the program, for use on Mac.

I have just downloaded and installed the latest version of XCode. So I have gcc installed.

Please tell me what I need to do to get this to work.

Thanks in advance,

Panarchy

Dev-C++ was written in Delphi. I don't think there is a Delphi compiler for Mac.

If it supports the Delphi components, you'll be in good shape. Note that Lazarus requires some translation to compile Delphi programs, and it is also Free Pascal.

Thanks.

Um, I'm a little confused at using fpc (Free Pascal Compiler).

I've never really used a command-line compiler (except gcc's make, ./configure and make install ones).

What I need to do is compile Dev-C++.

Please tell me what I need to do to get this to work.

Thanks in advance,

As I said, I don't even know if it's possible. I haven't spent any time trying to compile delphi code with FPC or GCC

Since I don't have access to a Mac, I may have limited help to offer... I would look at this page for hints, however.
