MinGW Windows Installation

MinGW stands for Minimalist GNU for Windows.

MinGW is a native software port of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) and GNU Binutils for use in the development of native Microsoft Windows applications.

MinGW can be downloaded with Code::Blocks.

Or it can be downloaded via  soureforge.

Next add:     C:\MinGW\bin

to the PATH environment variable by opening the System control panel, going to the Advanced tab, and clicking the Environment Variables button.

* * *

C/C++ programs can then be compiled in command line as:

c:\(your folder)>g++ -o filename filename.cpp

This will generate an executable file called:  filename.exe

* * *

Fortran progams can be compiled as:

c:\(your folder)>gfortran -o filename filename.f

This will generate an executable file called:  filename.exe

* * *

MinGW also provides a Unix-like shell.
