Hi,
I'm new to Digital Mars, and am working with the free download (I'm waiting
for my CD).

Windows ME.

While compiling, I get an the error stating my command line was too long. I
guess this is related to my operating system.

Do the tools on the CD (in particular smake) allow one to use longer command
lines than the tools in the free download? Or, will I be stuck with this
problem because I am using ME?


Also, briefly, what are the main differences between smake and make?

Thanks,
Doug

(if the error was coming from the linker). I'll check and try that.

smake is compatible with Microsoft's nmake. make is simpler, smaller, and faster.

smake has more features that one would expect from a fully featured make system, whereas make is barebones. For the Eclipse plug-in, I decided to rely on smake rather than make because smake has better support for implicit compile rules (the ".c.obj" variety).
