compiler used in C++BuilderX on Linux

Postby newreader » Tue Aug 17, 2004 4:41 pm

Does C++BuilderX always use gcc for compilation on Linux?

Does anyone know whether gcc supports stdcall calling convention?

Thanks!

background for the question --

The background to this question is:

we're trying to develop a Delphi/Kylix wrapper to some C++ code, and for D7/D8 we are using stdcall, yet that does not appear to be supported in gcc, and it does not appear that C++BuilderX has an option other than gcc for Linux.

Any facts to the contrary would be most welcome.

Here is a reference to the use of stdcall and many other details relating to calling DLLs from gcc (and thus from C++BuilderX) :
