    GDB no longer packaged with Mingw?

    I can't seem to find gdb in the recent mingw binary releases. I thought they used to package it with the mingw installer.

    You can find it on sourceforge project area.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I see, I always mistake tar.bz files for being used for source only, at least when it's for a windows application.

    I think it's because it can also be compiled on cygwin. Not sure though. I also always asked myself why they would tarball sources meant to be compiled under Windows... and that's the only explanation I could think of. Doesn't bother me. Just got me curious there for a while.
