    Anyone knows a good one? It can be command base also (or both with GUI and command).

    Thx!

    Yup, used it for CS class in 11th grade. Was quite nice. Now that uni provides VS.NET 2003 for free, I'll just be using that. :)

    Uhm, gcc is still known as gcc on Windows.

    install it, and look for mingw the executable to compile something with. I doubt you will find it, after all its still called gcc :p

    I wasn't talking about the filename. Re-read my initial post.
    I said Dev C++ and some other apps use MinGW which is a port of GCC for Windows. Three sentences from the quoted text in my post above mention it the same way. Let's not get into pointless arguments here. :p
