Compiling C applications
Posted on 2006-05-19
I want to clarify some details for compiling an executables, for win32 platform, written in "C" (for project specification)
The application will have few parameters configurable(URL specified inside apps, etc). Application have no GUI, it run as service, and have all parameters precompiled inside. Since I need change URL, I need each time recompile program from scratch. Since i am not a programmer, it will cause difficulties, etc.
What is possible ways to change parameters inside a source code and then compile application? Does it possible do an exe compilation use some custom configurator application, which will have GUI input to change URL, etc inside a source code, then from this GUI compile code to exe?(i.e. generate executables with required parameters). Or compilation can be done only via full developer library- standard C compiler application, from scratch?
