Hi,
Where can I find a simple installation for the GCC compiler for WIn2k.
By simple I mean "download and play".
I have found many sources but whenevr I try to compile a trivial program that includes only "iostream" I end up with some missing types.

Thanks

I haven't found what I am looking for there.
I am looking to download a package, that I can immediately then run the command "g++ foo.cpp: for a simple program using only iostream, and succeed.
It has to be simple, installation wise, and not an IDE.

You could then try to download the files from
http://www.mingw.org/
This is part of Dev-Cpp but contains only the compiler and some libraries. So it eases the use of gcc under windows. Drawback is that you need to download several files. Dev-Cpp is a single file to download but adds and IDE to the compiler.

I could use the g++ command directly after installing dev-cpp
