Please recommend a minimal c compiler and libraries required
I normally use linux for c coding but I am curious to know what is the smallest c compiler you could get for windows and what would be the minimal libraries required to go with it.
For example, I got a copy of tcc 0.9.23 - 1.3Mb c compiler but it looks for stdio.h etc when compiling - once I set the path up it should be fine as it has an include and lib directory with the .h files attached. But are MinGW and MSYS Distributions really necessary for barebones windows compilations? :) Excluding IDEs for now.
