Tanz created a new topic ' Automated, anonymous download of free C++ Compiler' in the forum. 5 years ago

Hi, I'm wondering if Embarcadero has considered allowing the free C++ compiler to be downloaded anonymously (i.e. without logging in beforehand) using scripts?

(I know I can technically download it using the "altd.embarcadero.com/…" address that is conveyed in the backup "Click here" link in the download page after registering or logging in, but I'm asking if it is acceptable to do so according to the license.)

My use case is to download and run the compiler in AppVeyor build workers. Being able to do so would allow open-source projects like Google Test to consider targeting this compiler in their CI jobs, hopefully increasing its popularity in the C++ market.

Alternatively, has Embarcadero considered releasing a Docker image for similar purposes?


Interesting to read about the work on porting Google Test to build with C++Builder. I actually did the same thing myself and submitted a PR (https://github.com/google/googletest/pull/1217, it was a fun weekend!) since I have a hobby project using it,
