How to compile in Windows/DOS

How to compile in Windows/DOS

MingW is a free compiler project so start here:

http://www.mingw.org/download.shtml#hdr2


I downloaded the core GCC compiler:
http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/gcc-core-3.4.2-20040916-1.tar.gz?download

But it's missing even the standard C runtime libraries like "stdio.h"!

You may also need to add environment variables from the DOS command line.

Here is a simple way to add variables to the PATH without overwriting the existing ones:

[code:1:b3eccbf95e]path = %PATH%;newdir[/code:1:b3eccbf95e]
%PATH% <- this holds all the current paths so by typing it you aren't overwriting the existing PATH environment variables.
