rofl.. nice.

http://www.bloodshed.net <- makers of dev-c++ , an IDE for windows that uses GCC as the compiler.


by "windows c" do you mean microsoft visual c++ like techieMoe suggests in your post on the other forum?

I'd say, from doing a bit of porting myself, that the biggest problem you're going to run into is with the content of the includes (whatever.h). These are drastically different. One simple example would be any implementation of network programming, since winsock, and especially the underlying ip headers are much different than Unix/Linux gcc.

If you're looking for the simplest route to convert from linux/unix to windows, try Cygwin and install the whole boat. It'll make a lot of the headaches go away when you port your code to windows.

Well C is the programming language, GCC is the "GNU C Compiler", which compiles your C source code. GCC is not a programming language.
