PCRE 8.44
« on: December 27, 2020, 01:25:56 AM »
Hi there
While I was updating one of my apps, I was looking for a new PCRE version. The latest current version is 8.44 https://www.pcre.org/ :thumbsup:
I created the release static libraries for 32- and 64-bit, as well as for ANSI and WIDE strings.
The calling convention for all libraries is STDCALL.

The naming is:
ANSI: PCRE844SA.lib
WIDE: PCRE844SW.lib


32- and 64-bit libraries are in separate folders.

Since the .zip file is larger than the maximum allowed size of the forum, I made it available here: http://objasm.x10host.com/DwnFiles/PCRE_8.44.zip

Greetings, Biterider

Nice :thumbsup:
Any idea why PCRE844SA is 3x the size of PCRE844SW?

Hi JJ
Good catch  :biggrin:

I checked the linker switches and noticed some differences in the debug information settings and global optimization.
Removing the symbol information halves the lib sizes.

I uploaded the zip file with the new files.
