    MinGW, a contraction of "Minimalist GNU for Windows", is a port of the
    GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), and GNU Binutils, for use in the development
    of native Microsoft Windows applications.
    MinGW contains the tools Code::Blocks will use to create/debug/link your executables.

    So I dont need to download any libraries or plugin or anything like that, I now have the FULL version?

    I am following the totorials and I must say, C++ is easy to learn and Code::Blocks is an excelent program to do it with, I was going to learn computer programing back in 1987, but computers sucked back then, and you would have to actually/manually type the code line for line, 1 mistake, and you will never find it, C and Basic were the thing then, and there editor sucked, to have or even run a program like Code::Blocks back then, you needed a Main Frame with them big ass tape drives that look like a movie projector reals, and they said, those Main Frames can hold Gigabites of files on those tapes. I am sure visual programing such as we have today was indeed avalible back then, but not to average joe.

    I am surprized that this is avalible for free, I was thinking that there would be some advances in programming technology, such as copy and paste would work greate for programing, now you just need to program behavior, back in the day, you needed to code the entire thing, now you can make a graphical program that runs in Windows by simply adding a headers, add more headers to create buttons for it, then YOU just program the behavior of the program.

    I am thinking that I would be able to simply make an IRC client for windows that is actually safe to use unlike mIRC that allows hackers to GET YOU, I know I will wind up makeing a text only chat client for IRC with all the other bells and wistles removed to make it safe, to just get on IRC channel of your liking and SAFELY chat there.
