Taking it back to the old school...well I'm on my way at least!
Hi guys, me again :)
I came across MinGW recently and MSYS and thought it would be really cool to compile in a command line on windows. I liked doing it in Linux.
Also it would give me a chance to have a better insight into what goes on "under the hood" as it were. So far I've been making my programs in an IDE and just click on build and out pops a .exe.
I downloaded MinGW and MYSYS and tried a simple compile and of course there was an error (couldn't find: g++ in this case). A good example of me not really knowing what I'm doing ;)
I scoured the net but failed to find a complete idiot's guide to installing and building a simple program using MinGW and MSYS, I was wondering if anyone could point me to one? Or perhaps I missed out a step inbetween installing MinGW and MSYS and trying to use them to build a program.
As usual, thanks for any replies :)
