Re: [fltk/fltk] Are there any advantages of the built-in image libraries? (#283) Albrecht Schlosser Oct 15, 2021 top right image

There's no general advantage in using the built-in libs rather than using the system libs.

Using the system libs (usually shared libs) has the advantage of making the executables smaller.

Reasons to use the built-in libraries include:

  • there is no system lib easily available (e.g. Windows)
  • compatibility: the system provides an incompatible version of the library
  • portability: linking (statically) with the bunded libs creates more portable executables
