KTIGCC v1.04
Posted by Michael on 28 September 2006, 00:55 GMT

As part of the Google Summer of Code project, Kevin Kofler has finished KTIGCC, which is an IDE for TIGCC on UNIX platforms (using X11). This is the equivalent of the TIGCC IDE that had existed in the Windows version. There also are binary and source RPMs available.

Did you really try?

Cygwin isn't exactly a supported platform. :-) You probably need hacks for at least libticables2, making it believe it is MinGW (because the target-specific code there doesn't support Cygwin). That, or just link with the MinGW tilibs, which may or may not work. (It's definitely a hack, you'll have problems with paths and such.) I think Window$ users are better served by Sebastian's TIGCC IDE right now. My plan is to support native Window$ (no Cygwin, no X11) with the KDE 4 port, as KDE 4 is being ported to Window$.

haven't tried it yet, but I do have KDE3 up and running under Cygwin, and Im waiting for the KDE4 native release (I screwed the hell out of my explorer.exe and I like Linux better anyway)

Hey, this is a KDE app, not a GNOME app. ;-)
(It does work on GNOME or any other X11 window manager or desktop environment though. That's what's so nice about X11. And also the network transparency.)

A "c"? We KDE people write "komes" with a "K"! ;-)

Good job guys, if I had an 89 I'd definitely use this. Does it link to the full KDE libs, or just Qt? (although then I guess it would be 'QTIGCC'...)

Never mind, now I feel like an idiot. In the description it says "using the KDE 3 libraries".

Mac OS X support

If anyone wants to try this out on Mac OS X:
* Make sure you get the latest tilibs snapshot (20060925). (Version 1.0.0 is too old!)
* I recommend configuring the tilibs with --disable-nls to avoid possible problems with the libintl. (The tilibs don't have up-to-date translations at this point anyway.)
* You also need X11 (e.g. Apple's version) and KDE 3 (which can be obtained from Fink).

I'd try it, but I don't do any calc development anymore, and your directions are confusing and contain to links.

There are no links because ticalc.org limits the word length to 40 chars. :-)

There's a link to the tilibs snapshots on the TIGCC/*nix download page, right next to the KTIGCC link. The INSTALL file (for those not familiar with GNU conventions: that's a text file describing how to install the software, not an executable or script) in the KTIGCC tarball also contains the URL.

Apple's X11 can be found on your OS X CD set. I believe it is also downloadable from Apple's site, at least it used to.

As for Fink, given its popularity, if you really didn't know about it, you'll find it using Google or some other search engine.

If you have any other questions, read the INSTALL documents carefully, and if they're not answered there, ask on the message board (the TIGCC Programming forum at TICT HQ).

Because of the functionality it offers? It's not like there are many alternatives, the original TIGCC IDE being Window$-only.

Because OS X is awesome and sometimes people like to write code.
How's that for not flaming you?

1. You have OS X.
2. You have an 89.
3. You want to write C programs for your 89.

It's pretty simple. ;-)

You'll also need this additional compile fix:

This is now fixed in KTIGCC 1.05.
