Hey gang --
I'm getting ready to do some Windows hacking this summer, and I have some
questions about compilers:
1. In the past I've used cygwin, but I'd rather not have to deal with
dragging around the cygwin1.dll any longer. Has anyone built externals
using mingw? It also seems that cygwin has stopped developing, and mingw
appears a bit more active.
2. Anyone done much with the 'free' MS C/C++ compiler?
3. Ditto for the Borland one?
Bear in mind that I'm an old guy, and I actually enjoy coding using
environments like vi + Makefiles. All these fancy IDE things give me the
willies. Any recommendations are most welcome, though.
