Or, you could make your own file extension.

Wow. You're seriously assuming that Java has a bug before assuming that X has a bug?
X doesn't have bugs.  It's just brainfuck to use it and everyone makes bugs by using it.

And as for the EXE extension, yes, it will.  It's just that Nautilus, Dolphin, Thunar, and any other file manager will assume that because it has a .exe extension, it is an EXE, and it will try to run it in WINE.

Note: the file is supposed to be called "Makefile," not "makefile"

Also, I'm segfaulting in LGM again. :/

39dll is merely a wrapper for WinAPI calls.  It's not cross-platform at all.

WINE can be used to read DLLs, and that can be an option for DLLs being cross-platform in ENIGMA.

Maybe not for you, but you're not the purpose of this forum.
Are you saying that every argument that you've made has been fully understood and accepted by the people of the opposing opinion, and that by arguing, both of you have changed your opinion?

Reasoning for this rule proposal, please.
because we have these debates for several pages and neither side will accept the other

it literally alters nothing

I wrote C++ with great programming techniques. What's the problem?
No, you didn't.

Creating loads of objects purely for organization is not good programming technique.

There are easier, more efficient ways of organizing things, and in fact, it removes readability rather than adds it.

Rusky, this is C++.

Not Java.

Java teaches people terrible programming techniques and is therefore terrible

Editing the source files is the only option at the moment.

Josh, I would show you how to install Arch, but you'd probably kill me.

At least with that, you won't have to have your box explode on every upgrade.

"Own functions" meaning C++, not GML.

erm, what made you assume that it didn't?

MinGW is a direct port of the GNU compilers, utilities, etc.

btw cygwin is not something like wine for windows, I'm not trying to run the linux C::B inside windows :pseudo:
I know that.

I don't understand why you would use Cygwin when MinGW should work fine.

Cygwin and MinGW are for people who want to use GCC on Windows.
That's MinGW, not Cygwin.  Cygwin aims at having bash, everything supported on Windows.  Even X11.  I don't see the point; it's a waste, imo.

Despite your belief that Linux is a panacea for computers, it's not. Other systems have a place, and people who use those systems can use open source compilers if they wish- that's the point of open source, after all.
And what is Windows' place?
