Anyone tested Open Watcom C Compiler?

Post by MugenFighter »

Has anyone tested the Open Watcom C compiler (DOS and Windows) in ReactOS?

I ask because I am in the process of making a concept for a GPLv3 open source game that I want to port to both FreeDOS and ReactOS, and I want it to be able to compile on both OSes. So if you tested it I would like to know any errors or glitches that were on ReactOS's part that you may have seen while testing it.

Thanks I forgot about Jira, sorry. I took a long break from ReactOS before finally deciding to check it out again. Again, sorry.

If you want to go with the Open Watcom C compiler toolchain you might wanna swap out the WASM backend with HJWASM. Development and/or maintenance on WASM may have stalled while HJWASM is seeing active development, per github history.
