Separate Distribution For Each Compiler


Recommended Posts

What is the chances of getting a separate download for each compiler? I only use Boostc but have to download the whole package. On my slow land line connection this takes forever with multiple disconnections from server ect.

 

How about helping us out there?

 

Thanks

You can use the split package download, you still have to download it all but at least you can get it in manageable chunks.

We did have separate compiler packages in the past but found out that there were too many confusions and user errors. Making one package made most of these confusions disappear. Because of this we don't plan to split the package again. For users that have slow connection (as Picxie already mentioned) we have a download package splitted into several smaller files.

You can also try using a download accelerator such as Star Downloader

see http://www.stardownloader.com/ for a free version

 

Star downloader will try to resume downloading in the event of a dropped connection rather than starting from scratch.

 

In these days of broadband its still very usefull considering how 'reliable' BTs conection is.
