Floppy disk Windows installer for VBCC tool chain

Here is an installer for VBCC on Windows. It installs vbcc, vasm, vlink, GNU make, AmigaOS NDK 3.9, and user manuals:


https://www.dropbox.com/s/n6xxou02z7agzih/Install-VBCC.exe?dl=1


Only the binaries:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/69btw7c4vv8yitp/vbcc0.9fP1.zip?dl=1



The current versions are: vbcc 0.9f patch 1, vasm 1.8a, vlink 0.16a, GNU Make 4.2

The setup takes care of paths, environment variables, and configuration files, so you can build Amiga programs from the command line or from inside your IDE immediately after installation.

The tool chain also targets Atari TOS, Atari MiNT M68K, and Atari MiNT ColdFire, for anyone developing for those systems.

Thanks for creating this, really new to programming.

What IDE would you recommend I use with this install?

I think any IDE will do fine. Personally I just use a good text editor and bind functions to build etc. on the F-keys.

Ohhhh, nice.
Thanks for sharing!

You wouldn't want to make a MacOS version of it by chance?

@Leffmann
Good idea but maybe not the best dl site. Maybe Frank could add it to his vbcc site if it is found to be problem free?

I was thinking Notepad++ or the AmiDevCpp editor (shouldn't be too difficult to get vbcc working with AmiDevCpp after it is installed). To each his own though.

Did you mean Mac OS or macOS (OS X new name after WWDC 2016)? Leave it to Apple to change the capitalization, remove a space and redefine a new old product with a name close enough to an old one to cause confusion.

I have always found some of Apple obsessions to be quite misplaced indeed.

The fact that they seem to worry more about uniformization of their OS names case rather than about fixing the increasing number of bugs in their software does not give me hope that this will ever change.

I'll see what I can do, but it may take some time. The installation procedure is just a matter of copying files and registering a couple of environment variables, so if you or anyone else happen to be handy with making Mac apps with GUIs then you can have the installation template and source code, and adapt it.

It would be the ideal place, but I don't think Frank is particularly interested in maintaining and supporting Windows stuff. Anyone who wants to is free to house the installer on their own site.

I could give it a try but I already have a ad hoc toolchain working so I'm not sure it would be a good idea for me to do something which will push my own projects further away.

How much source code is there to adapt?

Couldn't it be on Aminet as well?

Aminet is great but people quickly forget old additions and their names. Links from appropriate web sites to the archive on Aminet would be optimal.

Indeed, we kinda lack some kind of curated directory of Amiga software.
Maybe that would be a good addition to the Abime collection of sites.

(Sorry for the off-topic Leiffman!)

It's about 400 lines of C++ code.

It's a false positive.

It was scanned with Windows Defender, F-Secure, and virustotal.com before uploading. The original virustotal.com report is here:
