Undocumented feature for Windows users


Windows executables are a funny thing, and that's why Java has "java.exe" and "javaw.exe", or python has "python.exe" and "pythonw.exe".

Up to now murgaLua would have been the equivalent "murgaLuaw.exe", but it is now compiled as a console app, this means it'll always bring bring up that handy console window.


What if you don't want the console window ?

Then there is a handly little patcher I prepared that'll patch the one byte in the PE header that it takes to get rid of the console in Windows.

It's creatively called "no console patch.exe" and can be found in the along with the windows murgaLua executable.
