Has anyone tried to build it with clang?

Post by Super Mario »

I was wondering if anyone tried to attempted to build spring using the llvm/clang compilers. (The one got from the svn system).If build successfully. Are there any improvements using clang over gcc/g++?
Why I ask this? Because some point in the future I might consider to replacing gcc with clang. Your thoughts?

recipe for desync, it doesn't even sync between certain versions of gcc, let alone with a different compiler, if your goal is solo play, then it *might* work

It's more of a experiment really. The question is that will the spring engine will receive any improvements by using this compiler?

I guess the only way to find out is to try it. But I don't think it would make a big difference.

edit: I tried it once, but didn't come far as I couldn't figure out how to compile and link stuff with it.
