GCC-2.95 for Mingw (i386-mingw32) -- Release information
Release date: July 31, 1999.
I'm pleased to announce prebuilt gcc-2.95 packages for GNU Mingw
What are the various packages?
gcc-2.95: GNU Compilers for C, C++, ObjC, F77 plus the the respective
runtime libraries. Also includes binutils-2.9.4 (distributed with
Cygwin B20.1), Mingw runtime 1999-07-31, Anders Norlanders w32api
(slightly modified), GDB version 4.18.
gcc-2.95-msvcrt40-runtime: Tools to make MSVCRT dependent applications
instead of the default runtime, CRTDLL.
(*** I'm still working on this one, so it may not be there until 8/1/99 ***)
gcc-2.95-html-docs: Provides the documentation in HTML format.
What's not in this package?
libg++: Sorry, I stopped distributing libg++ a while back. If you
need it, see the gcc-2.95 FAQ (see the "LINKS" section for URL) and
build it yourself.
Please visit the web page before you attempt to download/install. It
may address problems you might run into.
See the INSTALL file for instructions. It's basically a matter of
unpacking the various packages that you may need.
About 24M, give or take a few.
MSVCRT vs CRTDLL runtimes?
The default distribution links with and uses CRTDLL.DLL, which is
guaranteed to be on *every* W95/NT system shipped. As I've done
for EGCS 1.1.2 release, I will also upload the add-on to make it work
with MSVCRT4.0 DLL, which is shipped with newer versions of W95/NT,
as well as with MS packages such as MS Explorer or even Wordpad.
Where are the rest of the utilities, such as make and gdb?
Jan-Jaap has made most of these tools available from his site, and I
see no reason to duplicate them. His site can be reached from the
"Related Sites" on my egcs page. I have included a version of gdb
(modified 4.18) in the distribution.
Where to report bugs?
