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.

What is MinGW?
MinGW ("Minimalistic GNU for Windows") refers to a set of runtime headers, used in building a compiler system based on the GNU GCC and binutils projects. It compiles and links code to be run on Win32 platforms... providing C, C++ and Fortran compilers plus other related tools. If you see references to "mingw32" instead of "MinGW", they are referring to the same compiler system. The project's name changed from mingw32 to MinGW is to prevent the implication that MinGW will only works on 32 bit systems (as 64 and higher bit machines become more common, MinGW will evolve to work with them). MinGW uses the Microsoft runtime libraries, distributed with the Windows operating system. Unlike other ports of GCC to Windows, the runtime libraries are not distributed using Gnu's General Public License (GPL). You, therefore, do not have to distribute your source code with your programs unless, of course, you use a GPL library in your programs..

Bloodshed Dev-C++ is a full-featured Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the C/C++ programming language. It uses Mingw port of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) as it's compiler

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
