I'm working on modernizing Rosetta Code's infrastructure. Starting with communications. Please accept this time-limited open invite to RC's Slack.. --Michael Mol (talk) 20:59, 30 May 2020 (UTC)


From Rosetta Code
MinGW is an implementation of Ada. Other implementations of Ada.
MinGW is an implementation of C. Other implementations of C.
MinGW is an implementation of C++. Other implementations of C++.
MinGW is an implementation of Fortran. Other implementations of Fortran.
MinGW is an implementation of Objective-C. Other implementations of Objective-C.

MinGW is a port of GCC to Windows.

MinGW can compile Ada, C, C++, Fortran and Objective-C. The compiled programs are .exe files; they can use the Microsoft C runtime MSVCRT.DLL and several other Microsoft libraries.

MinGW also provides the import libraries (like libadvapi32.a and libmscvcrt.a) and the header files (like <windows.h> and <stdio.h>). GCC needs these to compile programs that use the Windows API. The compiled programs only need the DLL libraries. Microsoft includes the DLL libraries with Windows.

MinGW always produces 32-bit code for x86. MinGW never produces 16-bit nor 64-bit code.
