    Never used it, but this should work:

    thanks for the link. I could find no good documentation for how to install and run it on windows 2000. Does anyone ni here know how? GNU makes their tools unnecessarily difficult to setup.

    Well that's vague - is that TurboC or the command line tools?
    Or something else entirely?

    Searching for all post by maththeorylvr revealed this:
    Code:
    Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32 Copyright (c) 1993, 2000 Borland

    No, but you can download Dev-C++ (http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html), which has a windows installer and includes GDB.
