Please help make CODE::BLOCKS become a portable reality

My friends in school would love to see Code::Blocks become portable. The problem is that we are noob computer science students that don't know yet how to make this wonderful application portable. The university we go to won't install this on their computers. We are aware of Dev-C++ portable but we notice that is outdated and has many bugs reported on sourceforge. We have try Dev-C++ and Code::Blocks in our home and we prefer Code::Blocks much more. We would greatly appreciate you gurus to help us out make Code::Blocks a portable reality.

Thank you all for your time.

I'll take a look at it

I'll take a look at it tonight. I like this better than Dev C++ as well, and since Code::Blocks has finally been updated, I'd say it's worthy to become portable.

Don't expect a release until

Don't expect a release until Thursday or Friday. I do have a full-time job during the day, and a social life most evenings.

I give up

I guess I'll never see this one ever becoming portable. It is such a shame that no one has the skills in this whole community to put it together. I'm just amaze how no one has care to make Code::Blocks portable. Such great tool. Oh well.

I'm still working on it.

I'm still working on it. It's only been 2 weeks, and as i said before, real life, a real job, and other similar things are more important.

Sorry but i won't be working

Sorry but i won't be working on it the project allready belongs to some1 else. and also he is much more exprenced than me so he will do a better job. You have to understand that this is a complicated program that requires alot of handling. It is going to take time. I won't mind offering help but there is not much that i can do that he can't do better.

FYI, CodeBlocks has an FAQ about this and it works very well for me. I didn't even have a windows machine to install it on initially, so I installed it with wine in linux and copied the files and it works great!

while this works for the

while this works for the C::B settings, and for some plugins, it does not work for all plugins, which can cause files to be left behind, and can cause settings to be lost. I have a package that properly stores the settings now, but I have to write the code to make it parse ALL of the settings files and update drive letters, or find a way to make the config file work with relative paths.

i'm already working on it, i just don't have a vista machine to test paths on for a base install of Code::Blocks. Once I get that, I should be good to go.
