Hi,

If I am well informed the gcc.exe and g++.exe are both
compilers and at the same time linkers ? Or maybe they
call a helping linker exe ?

When you use dev-cpp for use with a cross compiler, you
can now already specify which compiler to use. But
there's now way to specify the linker. Especially when
the linker is surely a different exe then the compiler
exe. Off course in such a case, there also should be
the possibility to specify some linker options. Also
interesting is you can specify pre and post linker
commands !

What do you think,
Lieven

    Oh forgot, I know pre and post build can be achieved by
    making your own makefile which can be included in the
    makefile.win. With all-after and all-before. But at this
    time for our cross compiler we can't use the makefile yet,
    because we can't specify the special linker exe. :-)
