Hi
I've learnt that what gets allocated in a library get freed in the library!
What you allocate in your program get freed in your program! Don't mix.
So as i see it, those memory functions are quite important, use them!
Regards Benny
If it ain't broke, don't fix it ;)

Yes, it doesn't compile anyway..
Idk I can't find the right directory to include :-\

I might use the dll and call it a day cause it is getting frustrating, but I really wanted it to be statically linked

is "import library not found C" the only issue you're having?

Yes! I think so.
Right now I'm using the dll you provided yesterday until I try to make the static library work again. It works perfectly so thanks a lot for that :D

I was hoping I taught you to fish, instead of giving you one xD

let's try to make static the work for you.
Did you try to look for "libc" in your mingw installation? just search for the file itself. (it's likely to be named libc*.a)

I am probably going to bind more c library after. I am definitely going to revisit all the advices everyone gave when doing so.

Yes, I tried looking for it but I couldn't locate it in my mingw install

instead of trying to link to libC try the to link to the set of these libraries:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. {$linklib ntdll}
  2. {$linklib mingwex}
  3. {$linklib mingw32}
  4. {$linklib msvcrt}
  5. {$linklib kernel32}
  6. {$linklib libgcc}

according to the build logs of make, only the following libraries are used for wren_test
Code: Text  [Select][+][-]
  1. -lm
  2. -lmingw32
  3. -lgcc
  4. -lgcc_eh
  5. -lmoldname
  6. -lmingwex
  7. -lmsvcrt
  8. -lpthread
  9. -ladvapi32
  10. -lshell32
  11. -luser32
  12. -lkernel32
