    dev-c++ uses the windows version of gcc as its compiler.

    If you're looking for a command line compiler in general then try borland , they've gone command-line-style in their latest version(s) if i remember well. But for using gcc on your windows machine i'm not so sure. I think Cygwin can do that.

    no bithub was right
    if you set the right environment path then you can run gcc from the command line in windows
    PATH = "D:\Dev-Cpp\bin"

    Code:
    Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

    D:\Documents and Settings\Ty>gcc
    gcc: no input files
    
    D:\Documents and Settings\Ty>
