#459 Dead links in list of supported Windows compilers

18 hours ago

When I look at the list of supported compilers for Windows (http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_a_supported_compiler), I find that many of the links are various forms of dead (404 messages, parked domains, etc.). It would probably be a good idea to update the list of supported compilers with active links, if the compilers are even still available.
MinGW GCC C/C++ Free Compiler, including GFortran - Worked so far, well it downloaded anyway.
Cygwin GCC C/C++ Free Compiler - Looks current, but I did not download.
MSP430 GCC C/C++ - web page recommends using http://www.ti.com/tool/msp430-gcc-opensource instead.
TriCore GCC C/C++ - Redirects to company title web page. Product still appears to be available, but not for free.
PowerPC GCC C/C++ - Redirects to title web page. Product may be available after some hunting.
Microsoft's Visual C++ Free Toolkit 2003 - 404 message. No longer available.
Borland's C/C++ Free Compiler 5.5 - 404 message. New owner no longer provides/supports it.
Digital Mars Free C/C++ Compiler - Looks Ok.
OpenWatcom Free C/C++ Compiler - Japanese 404 message
Small Device Free C Compiler (SDCC) - Looks Ok.
Intel C/C++ Compiler - 404 message. No longer provided?
Digital Mars D Compiler for Windows - Looks Ok.

    Hi, David, thanks. Can you edit that wiki page directly? Or can you create an account on the wiki system? I mean if you can edit the wiki, then you can directly modify and fix it.

    It looks like edits are locked out for anonomous users. I can not see how to create an account on that wiki. So it looks like I can not edit the page myself. Someone who is already a user on the wiki with edit permission will have to make the changes.

    Do you have a user account in our forum? http://forums.codeblocks.org/
    I can help you to create one wiki account. (I can ask our web administrator there).

    I have started updating things. I have to test if Code::Blocks will interface with the newer versions of some of the compilers. I do not qualify for the free version of Intel's C++ compiler, so if someone else could check that one and report, that would be appreciated.
