Thread: dynamically/staticly linked QT

    dynamically/staticly linked QT

    Went to get opera and it asks if I want the dynamically or statically linked QT. I choose statically and I think I kind of know what the difference is but I'm probably wrong so can someone tell me?

    Re: dynamically/staticly linked QT

    statically means that the required functions of other libraries that are used by a program get compiled into the same binary as the source code of the program itself

    dynamically means that the functions of other libraries wouldn't get compiled into your binary, but it would be linked to the libraries

    Static == larger file, no dependency problems

    Dynamic == smaller file, but you need to have the proper libs it wants (QT in this case) installed.
