    1. How can i change the warning level in Dev C++?
    I think it's in Tools->Compiler Options. There might be an option for warning level there. If not, add "-W -Wall" to "extra compiler options".

    2. How can i update the background gcc compiler with the latest one?
    That would be slightly more complicated. I've never done it, but since you can configure the compiler that Dev-C++ uses, I'm sure you could download the latest GCC, instead it where you choose, and instruct Dev-C++ to use it.

    The MinGW wiki comes with an article on what to install and how:
    http://www.mingw.org/MinGWiki/index....3124da3e143e84

    The only thing you may want to consider is that the versions available at the download webpage of the main website are the latest working release. This also means some are somewhat old. Candidate versions are excellent choices for about all modules. So you may prefer to download from sourceforge at http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...?group_id=2435

    My advise is to first download from the main website according to what you read on the wiki. Don't install anything. Then go to sourceforge and replace those modules you downloaded with those found in the Candidate header. Also download the GDB 6.3.2 Snapshot of GDB and MSYS. Much, much better than the ones provided in Current.

    This is what I have on my mingw downloads folder:

    binutils-2.17.50-20060824-1.tar.gz
    gcc-core-3.4.5-20060117-1.tar.gz
    gcc-g++-3.4.5-20060117-1.tar.gz
    mingw32-make-3.81-1.tar.gz
    mingw-runtime-3.10.tar.gz
    mingw-utils-0.3.tar.gz
    MSYS-1.0.10.exe
    msysDTK-1.0.1.exe
    w32api-3.7.tar.gz
    gdb-6.3-2.exe

    Find those in sourceforge and I believe you will have the latest instalment of MinGW. Then it is just a matter of keeping an eye on the news box on the main mingw webpage.

    EDIT: Oh... You need to change some of the executables dev-c++ calls. Tools menu->Compiler Options->Programs tab and then:

    gcc is mingw32-gcc.exe
    g++ is mingw32-g++.exe
    make is mingw32-make.exe

    maybe not, but it's definately not "Computer questions not related to C/C++/C# programming" and "Questions specific to C++ Programming" doesn't dictate that it must be directly related to the language itself... IMO it was fine where it was...

    Strange... My answer to a completely different thread is included here. The OP was asking about installing Dev-C++. I'm pretty sure...

    EDIT: nevermind. It's the second question.

    how did I know this would be your response... oh that's right, publicly questioning authority is bad... it leads to... oh no... improvements!

    there was never a need for a response in the first place... as I said... I just saw something, had an opinion, and let it be known.

    This is really why I'm replying... in hopes of getting this closed... this thread took an ugly turn and needs to die.

    I apologize if I offended you, it wasn't meant as a personal attack of any kind. I disagreed with something that was done, and I brought it up. My intention was to see if people agreed or disagreed with my position. I hold nothing against you, and quite honestly did not even look at the name of who it was moved by before posting my opinion.

    If you feel the need to delete any or all of my posts in this thread, please do so.
