-std=c++11 and Premake?

edited May 2015 in General discussions
Are we supporting c++11 as default in the premake scripts?

Should we be supporting it as default?

    Mmh, to which scripts are you referring?
    Those for orx itself and the tutorials?
    It shouldn't matter as orx doesn't use any of C++11 new features in the rare C++ parts (mostly the Box2D plugin, Android's keyboard one and the tutorial #10).

    Yep it wouldn't be for Orx itself, so I was thinking more of the premake for the tutorial at: orx/tutorial/build/premake.lua

    This is the base that can be used for our own projects.

    So this could be added, for example in the linux section:
    configuration {"linux"}
    	buildoptions {"-std=c++0x"}

    or depending on your version of g++....
    configuration {"linux"}
    	buildoptions {"-std=c++11"}

    So yeah... its a problem that the flag changes depending on which gcc version you have.

    Perhaps the answer to my question is no. Let the develop maintain his own premake and choose c++11 if he wants rather than make it standard.

    Mmh, I think if that people are advanced enough to use C++11 features, they should be able to add the required flags in the premake script. :)
