Description iamtanmay 2014-05-15 09:21:43 UTC
The default build process on Windows in Cygwin is ./configure, make and make install. I would like to use emcc(Emscripten) instead of gcc, to compile Mono through Emscripten. What is the wisest way to change the compiler in the build process ?

Regards

It is highly unlikely that mono will compile/work with anything else than gcc.

Its better to ask questions on the mono-devel mailing list:
