it has been some time since gcc was released in version 4.0, but mingw
is still in 3.4.x? I just wonder if 4.0 is going to be released as mingw
and/or what is cousing so big troubles that 4.1 can't be compiled.
I also wonder why are there so many unix applications ported under mingw
umbrella? Most of those that are in mingw "distro" are already ported by
gnuwin32 project (http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/). These are already
native, not dependent on cygwin emulation so I wonder why are mingw ppl
duplicating the work (& space)?
Since I have been user of mingw since long ago, and have great interest
in getting gcc 4.1 to work on windows, I wonder if I can somehow help
in getting this one to work? Documentation on compilinge gcc under
windows seem to be very scarce, so I wonder if anyone can point me in
some direction where I can start, what are problems in porting 4.0
series ... etc?
Btw - I hope u don't mind criticism; I'm big fan of mingw and user of
msys since many years back. I was drown to mingw projects 'coz I didn't
want to install almost entire redhat distro (cygwin) on windows machine
just in order to use bash and gcc tools for programming. Msys was a
great thing, small & simple, but it seems to me that it's slowly growing
to cygwin proportions :-).
I don't have much time, but I would really like to help if I can; & I
mean more constructive then contributing "constructive criticism" so if
u can point me in right direction to start, I'll be more then glad to
try help with getting gcc 4.1 to compile on win.
