    screenshot of MinGW compiler and math library file

    Hi

    Here is the screenshot of library file of MinGW compiler: http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/8...ngwlibrary.jpg

    Would you please tell me which of these files is for math related functions? I'm just curious and wants to see what's inside. Thanks
    I'm an outright beginner. Using Win XP Pro and Code::Blocks. Be nice to me, please.

    MinGW uses the Microsoft CRT for standard C library functions. So you could just look on MSDN. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...24(VS.60).aspx

    libmsvcrt.a is the dynamic link library for MSVCRT.DLL, which is the default CRT which MinGW links to.

    generally, with most distributions of gcc (mingw included) the math library is libm.a/libm.so/etc. internally it probably just calls functions in libmsvcrt.a like Codeplug said.
