Working on windows is indeed cool when using MinGW! Many thanks for the excellent work!
Compiles GraphicsMagick without any problems whatsoever and the resulting code runs fast!
Great! Able to link windows .lib and .dll file.
The existence of this projects simplifies considerably the life of all those developers who provide platform-indepedent source-code. When, in the old times, you asked: Why isn't there a version which runs on my system, somebody (and often times the same guy as always) had to answer: Get the code and compile it! You would not dare to ask a second question... Now you may. And you will get a helpful answer. Thanks to MinGW. You weren't there - how could you know...
@martadrlik what about 7zip (www.7zip.org)? It can handle lots of compressed formats, including .tgz (tar gzip)
