  • While I am a Win32 user I really do not like the current CamelPack. I wish they would have picked up PXPerl or at least used MinGW instead of DEV-C++.
    • I've been wondering... I've had a look at Dev-C++ [sourceforge.net]. It looks to me like it uses MinGW or a compatible (gcc) compiler. So if it works with Dev-C++, I should think it should work with MinGW without the IDE too... no? All you would have to do, is figure out what command line switches they're using.

        In fact, DevC++ *is* using MinGW. The problem, as mentioned in other comments, lies in interpreting the MinGW docs to derive and setup a sensible environment:
                http://www.mingw.org/ [mingw.org]
                https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435 [sourceforge.net]

        I would consider the first versions of the camelpack/vanilla installers as proof that a straightforward install is actually possibly on Windows (at least one that meets minimum requirements for Alias' testing).

        Rather than stopping here (met Alias' challenge, after all!) there is a project site being setup to welcome future suggestions/contributions. Stay tuned ;)

        Cheers,
