In Topic: "unofficial" programmer rant thread

08 August 2014 - 03:13 PM

Browsers have become the ultimate bloatware. Reading a little HTML, showing some gif/png/jpg image embedded in it and being able to save a linked file should be all thats needed. Its just that over time there appeared embedded script language, plugins need to be installed so people need not install programs on their computer or do another click to start some downloaded file or to prevent the scripts from running cause of more and more added security vulnerabilities, embedded pdf viewers that run much slower than saving the file and doubleclicking it and all kinds of other garbage.rolleyes.gif

Btw., you are handling WM_CLOSE wrongly. Instead of calling PostQuitMessage you should call DestroyWindow (which then causes WM_DESTROY message and some other things for cleanup). http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms632617%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Why dont you ask your teacher (thats his job) how function parameters work, how return values are used, how to find descriptive variable names and how to translate a formula into a C++ function?

In Topic: Setting up GLFW in Code::Blocks

30 July 2014 - 05:27 AM

Why didn't you read http://www.glfw.org/docs/latest/build.html ? You need to correctly link all dependencies and you should not link both the static and the dll version of the GLFW library at same time.

And you better use the -l option for adding a library: https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-4.9.1/gcc/Link-Options.html#Link-Options
