I have written some effects in C++ (g++) using freeglut on Linux, and I compile them with
g++ -Wall -lglut part8.cpp -o part8
So I was wondering if it is possible to have g++ make static compiled Windows executables that contains everything needed?
I don’t have Windows, so it would be really cool, if I could do that on Linux 🙂
mingw32 exists as a package for Linux. You can cross-compile and -link Windows applications with it. There’s a tutorial here at the Code::Blocks forum. Mind that the command changes to
x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc-win32, for example.
Ubuntu, for example, has MinGW in its repositories:
$ apt-cache search mingw [...] g++-mingw-w64 - GNU C++ compiler for MinGW-w64 gcc-mingw-w64 - GNU C compiler for MinGW-w64 mingw-w64 - Development environment targeting 32- and 64-bit Windows [...]
