    Wich Compiler to choose ?

    I want to develop GUIs using the Win32 API. I also want to do it with the eclipse CDT plug-in. As far as i understand Cygwins gcc can only create console applications. Is taht wrong ? If yes tell how to change that ( he does it all the time here ), if it is true could yomeone recommend me another compiler that works with eclipse ?

    Thanks alot !

    This is the one most people seem to use when creating win32 GUI programs, not that it is limited to just GUI programs - it also creates console programs.
    Get the version 5 beta, its a lot better than version 4

    I don't know what that CDT is, but it looks like an IDE (in the same way that dev-c++ is an IDE).
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
