    MinGW compiler

    Does anyone know which files I would need to download in order to use the compiler?

    I'd suggest you download dev-c++.
    It includes the mingw compiler, but it does so as a handy single executable which takes out all of the guesswork.
    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.

    mingw is a small package of libs. the compiler is gcc
    if you want to do full posix programming you'll have to use Cygwin
