Does anyone use CodeBlocks with the TI-99 GCC compiler?

It seems like a nice environment to work in.

I don't have experience with CodeBlocks, but may give it a try now that you mention it. 


I have TI-GCC installed on a headless Linux server, and I've been looking for a way to do remote development from Windows.  It looks like CodeBlocks supports this using a plugin called Uniwin: https://softwarerecs...om/a/14178/3427

I've got things moving along.  I decided to start with a port of a friend's game.  I almost have the entire base compiling (leaving all the drawing / etc stuff todo).  It didn't like bool and declarations of the loop.  The assembler complained a ton, but I think I may not be using the correct one, although it did complain about joyst and a few other things.  I'm curious to see how big this thing is compiled - but I'll need the assembler output to verify.


If this works out fitting...  Pretty awesome.

ubuntu 17.04 needs  apt-get install tree for install.sh


fails in make


Makefile:394: recipe for target 'bfd.info' failed

Makefile:1094: recipe for target 'info-recursive' failed
Makefile:3094: recipe for target 'all-bfd' failed
got it to build fine on my 16.04 machine.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯




The current prerequisites for a freshly installed Ubuntu 17.10.1 system appear to be:





sudo apt install build-essential libgmp-dev libmpfr-dev 

And then for some arcane reason, 'tree'  but you can change the install script to not need tree : ls -1 will do nicely instead. 

BINUTILS_PATCH=`ls -1 binutils-*.patch | tail -1`
GCC_PATCH=`ls -1 gcc-*.patch | tail -1`

or you can just install tree, it isn't on most, if any, current ubuntu distros by default. 

sudo apt install tree



Then, it will build away... however it will fail in the end with errors about not finding the 9900 version of the c++ while building some libiberty tests, and then report at the end, that it is successfully built.

Oh, I'll add, I couldn't get ubuntu 17.04 to install... or rather, once installed off media, there was a hell storm of 'oops-we-f'ed-this-up' and you have to hack the machine to get it to upgrade to 17.10 anyway...

Can someone create a gcc (for ti99 cross compiler) windows installer?
