- Subject: How download gcc + its source?
I installed Cygwin via http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/setup.exe,
by downloading first and then installing with everything set to default,
when I double click the Cygwin icon on Windows XP
I get the Cygwin shell,
I cannot find gcc, I recursively searched the whole of the cygwin directory
C:\cygwin and there is no file whose name has gcc as a substring,
I also did
and found lots of other things, but no gcc,
on the site itself, I found eg a directory listing of gcc-3.3.1
but no download button for either!
I dont want to see a directory listing but want to
download the entirety of both, preferably as an archive!
The faq doesnt seem to mention how to download gcc,
I dont know how to use cvs either,
So how would I download + install eg the gcc-3.3.1 binary and its source?
I hope I dont have to use cvs, but if I have to what commands shall I
type from the cygwin shell?
gcc-3.3.1 interests me as this specific version is available on another
platform so I can synchronize the gcc version across platforms,
