I use the MinGW distribution to compile my c code in Windows. However
the enhanced ASCII set is compiled with codepage 437, I need to change
it to 850.
Do I have to recompile the MinGW Distribution?
If so, what do I need for that and what should I modify in the source
code to change the codepage?
Thanks for any hints...

Somebody else correct me if I am wrong, but I doubt that the compiler
does anything about the encoding of characters. The only thing in a
C/C++ compiler that has anything to do with this are the UCNs of C++
and the latest C version, i.e. strings of the form "\u00a0". Is that
what you are talking about?
The run-time library can have support for encodings, but Mingw doesn't
come with it's own run-time but uses Microsoft's instead, so if that
is really the bit that intersets you, you should direct your question

If you tell us what exactly your problem is, preferably with a short
program (less than 20 lines) for demonstration, we may be able to help
you. It almost certainly won't involve changing the compiler.
