The link https://support.microsoft.com/kb/140584/en-us (in INSTALL.md) for "How to link with the correct C Run-Time CRT library" is currently down. I am not sure if this link needs to be removed or updated to point to more current Windows information.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
I am a novice when it comes to cURL. I simply noticed as a matter of course when going through the documents for the first time, so I do not know if the information is still relevant. I imagine users who compile on the Windows environment need to be aware of the caveats associated with DLL vs Static regardless.
Is the info still relevant? Should we maintain our own docs for it?
It has some outdated info, it says the default switch is single threaded but in any recent compiler it's the multithreaded crt dll (release /MD, debug /MDd). The crt mixing part is also covered in How To Use the C Run-Time and the compiler switches are documented elsewhere so we could link to that instead
