Compressonator available for Linux

Discussion created by quiret on Jul 31, 2017

Hello fellow developers,


surely you are aware of AMD's open-source Compressonator project. In my opinion it is a great example that AMD cares about free-minded developers that just want to make things. So I decided to port the compressor library as well as the CLI to Linux!




Please consider evaluating my pull request and/or testing the CLI under Linux yourself. What I basically did was use C++11 constructs to replace the Windows-native constructs, and it works


Targetting the Windows platform first-candidate is a great idea! Though Linux is full of developers aswell and we should cherish them aswell.
