  • Compiler differences

    A quick question about the different compilers

    If I read the docs correctly, the following is true.

    DLL IDE Sockets
    PB/Win Y Y Y(?)
    PB/CC N N Y(?)

    Did I read the docs correctly?
    If the above is true, is it possible to build a console
    DLL (no UI) with the Win version.

    Thanks in advance.

    The differences:

    1- PB/WIN can create DLL's, PB/CC cannot.
    2- PB/WIN offers functions to create a GUI, PB/CC offers functions to manage a Console window.

    Both offer a complete IDE, debugger, and easy access to TCP/UDP. Everything else is the same.

    It's a piece of cake to create a DLL with no user interface. If you want the DLL to write to the Console Window, you'll need to just use Win API functions to do so.
