MFC? Compiling without it?
« on: October 22, 2008, 16:57:34 »
Is it possible to get the source to compile without MFC? how dependent is modplug on these libraries? i was fiddling around, trying to get my favorite and most used application to compile.. and kept hitting a brick wall over this mfc thing. i think i learned a bit in the process... so now i'm wondering if there is any alternative??
i probably sound like a douche - but i was going to get involved in c++ programming, and then got contracted to learn java... but i still wonder... is gtkmm and option or some other foss gui library?

In short: no.

More or less the whole GUI is MFC based, so I would say that the rate of dependence is rather high.

Switching GUI library is not a small task, and while there every now and then has been discussion about doing it, no progress in that field.
