MingW

P: n/a
I would like to install the MingW 3.4.2/g++ compiler(which, I presume,
is the latest version) on my computer. I seem to be lost when I look at
the MingW download page:
http://www.mingw.org/download.shtml

Can someone please tell me how to go about doing it? Which are the
executables and packages I need to download in order to do this?

Thanks.
LRS.

Greetings,

Don't worry about it. A lot of people have trouble with the UI on that
page. Download the following:

{Current->GCC->bin->gcc-core}
This is the C compiler and all of its dependencies.

{Current->GCC->bin->gcc-g++}
This is the C++ compiler, and all of its dependencies.

{Current->Windows API->bin->Windows API}
This includes the Windows headers and libs

{Current->binutils->bin->binutils (not the HTML one)}
Various utilities you will need, including the windows resource
compiler.

{Current->gdb->bin->gdb}
The debugger

{Current->make->bin->mingw32-make (the exe)}
And this runs the whole show =)

Simply download this:

http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/MinG...3.exe?download
Alternatively you can install the latest Dev-C++ beta that uses this and also provides an
IDE (very good one for C++ beginners):
