Compiling RIS Pattern Plugins (Windows)

The .bat file that Cutter uses to compile/build a RIS pattern plugin on Windows has been altered so that it specifies the "-EHsc" flag. The .bat is located at,


When it compiles (alt + e or control + e) a pattern plugin Cutter substitutes some of the text of the .bat file with the name of the plugin being built, after which, it merges the edited text with a copy of the following file.

    C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0/VC/bin/x86_amd64/vcvarsx86_amd64.bat

The resulting script is automatically run by Cutter. The path to Visual Studio's vcvarsx86_amd64.bat file can be set in preferences - figure 1

If the path is edited make sure the "Save Cpp" button is clicked.

The completion of Attribute strings has been improved. For example, if an Attribute rib statement is followed by quotation + 't' the following typing completions will be available.
