I tried without success to build this weekend. It ends up creating a 1.8GB dll (debug) but fails on the creation of the op.h. (Looks like that is being done with an external python tool instead of cmake built in GENERATE facility and there are some dependencies it cannot find from within visual studio)
First I need to figure out how to get it built but also I have a question. 1.8GB is ridiculous for a single dll, especially for a “lightweight framework” and the build time is multiple hours which is also suspect. (VS2017 building 2015 project on 12 core xeon 3.6Ghz with 12G ram and stripped SSD)
- How do I build this thing? Why are there no pre-builts (number of options? or just does not build)
- If building from source, how long should it take and what output should I expect size of dll(s) and their names
- Is debug ABI compatible?, can I build a debug app and link against a release dll(lib)
The dll does not have any indication of debug vs release, if I build the install task will it go into a different directory or when I build the release and install it will it wipe each other out?
