mingw Posix or Win32?

Post by spflanze » Tue Mar 03, 2020 9:54 pm

I am reinstalling my compiler using the download from: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw- ... e/download

This installation program gives me a choice between posix, and Win32. In Windows 7 which one should be used to compile wxWidgets 3.1.3?

It doesn't really matter.
With POSIX you will get a standard POSIX C functions.
With Win32 you will get an extra MS extensions to POSIX.

Both options are just for compiler and it doesn't matter which one you choose.

Thank you.
