scripts doesn't work
« on: June 11, 2013, 12:43:07 PM »

i noticed that scripts doesn't work on the latest nightly builds. i also searched the forum if there is some announcement about it, maybe it's temporary disabled because of memory usage, but i didn't find any notice.
i am using 5d mk3 and 5d mk2, with the same result.

any comment from the devs? thaks a lot

Current scripts only work in PicoC, not in TCC.

Use the official nightly builds, not the raw ones.

ok alex, thanks for the answer. why is it disabled in the raw nightly builds? memory? for me there is not a way back to pre-raw builds :-)

PicoC is going to be replaced with TCC (and raw builds use TCC, both as module loader and as scripting engine).

There is a difference between the dialects: TCC needs a main function, because it's ANSI C, but PicoC just executes whatever it finds there. Also, PicoC API is not yet ported to TCC.
