Hi sdcc users and developers,
if you carefully looked to the SDCC Snapshot Build web page, you
might noticed two new items: "Windows 64bit (experimental)
(x86_64-w64-mingw32)" and "Windows 64bit package with installer
Both contains the native 64 bit Windows compiled sdcc suite. The
builds are done on Erik's cf-x86 amd64 Fedora 12 Linux machine,
cross-compiled in mingw_w64 environment (libraries, header files,
...) with x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc (GCC) 4.5.4 (prerelease).
Regression test are ran on the same machine with wine64 and they all
The zip packages sdcc-snapshot-x86_64-w64-mingw32-yyyymmdd-bbbb.zip
are quite complete. The only remaining TODO is compilation of 64 bit
readline5.dll and it's inclusion.
The setup package still needs some work:
Any reports of successful or unsuccessful installation &
execution are welcome!
- I just noticed that it has to be renamed since the name is
same as for 32 bit packages. The new name will probably be
- Detection when trying yo install 64 bit package on 32 bit
- Proper installation in 64 bit registry and in 64 bit "Program
Files". Currently it is incorrectly installed as 32 bit
application in "Program Files (x86)" directory.
- Already mentioned inclusion of 64 bit readline5.dll
Thanks to Erik Petrich to upgrade cf-x86 to Fedora 12 (glibc 2.11 is
required by brebuild mingw_w64) and to gcc, mingw_w64 and wine
teams to make this possible.
