(A) I suggest the mingw distribution has an /examples directory which
contains a few source codes for all languages supported by gcc.
In this way correct installation could be verified without pain.
(B) It might help to have a table which says what exactly is supported by
mingw and what is not.
X/Open? Ansi? Posix?
Where does fork() belong?
Or is trial and error the only way to find out?
If so, ok. But someone should say it.
(C) To make the MSYS distribution really popular it needs all supporting
"man" and other documentation of all tools which it contains.
Easy and quick access is essential. Some rather vague pointers to general
GNU sources are maybe not quite so useful.

The docs are fairly specific - MinGW supplies the Win32 API. That's
pretty much all. For W32API details go to MSDN
