Explains how to set up Msys/MinGW and extra GNU utilities so you get a full Unix Programming environment to produce native Windows applications.
Useful utilies like cp, ls, gzip, head, tail, etc. The version of tar is too old (-z, -j or -I options are not supported).
|Note||These tools listed are provided in MSYS and may cause conflict with those provided by the MSYS package. There may be other packages available that you might want.|
EDLL is a library available on SourceForge. It is useful to load plug-ins which depend on each other and on your main application. It resolves symbols at runtime as you would expect to happen under Unix systems (such as ldl does under Linux.)
The library loads your modules and standard DLLs and resolves all the symbols for you. It already works well for C and C++. I would assume this solution will work for any language supported under MinGW. It requires the BFD library. It can also be used with the ltdl library which means you can write your code in a portable manner in your code (i.e. it will work under Unix as well as MS-Windows).
The Agency Project provides the public with optimized libraries for use with MinGW. For users new to MinGW, a pre-packaged distribution of MinGW is provided to simplify installation. For more information, visit http://the-agency.sourceforge.net/
Excellent introductions to C programming.
Thorough and well written, the most notable for MinGW users are An introduction to GCC which covers subjects other than coding (such as command line options and good practice) for generic gcc and GNU BASH reference manual (a guide is in the works). CVS and diff/patch are also covered well. It appears that the PDF versions are the entire docs even though pages indicate they are samples. There are also some Python tutorials, but I didn't say that ;-).
Many GNU tools and other tools with an open-source license, such as a2ps, bison, bzip2, calc, coreutils, diff and patch, enscript, file, findutils, flex, gawk, grep, groff, gsl, gzip, jpeg, libpng, netpbm, t1utils, tiff, ttf2pt1, units, wget, which, zlib.
A collection of source code and executables written using ANSI C and the win32 API compiled with MinGW.
Working - among others - on a cross-compile and native Ada compiler toolchains for MingGW. The compiler provided is based on current versions fo the gcc tool chain. While the emphasis is on the Ada compiler whenever possible other gcc compiler are created en-passant as well.
