Optional stuff

Subversion Client

Get yourself a Subversion client and download the sources from the Subversion repository.

Patching

You can use WinMerge to see changes in source code visually. This is particularly useful for submitting and reviewing patches.

  1. Create a new directory. For example C:\mingw.
  2. Extract the files mentioned above in the directory you just created. It is important that you extract gcc-update.zip last because it overwrites the buggy gcc.exe from gcc-2.95.3-fastcall.zip.
  3. In your install directory (C:\mingw in this example), you fill find the file mingw32.bat. Change the line that updates the PATH variable according to your install directory (add C:\mingw\bin in this example).
  4. Run mingw32.bat before you want to use mingw. You can call it from autoexec.bat or you can call it whenever you open a shell window.
