Visual-MinGW is an Open Source project hosted by SourceForge.net.
The aim of this project is to provide
for MinGW compiler.
Development started during July 2001
with following goals :
- Provide a "Minimalist"
Open Source IDE, developed with nothing more than itself
and built with MinGW compiler.
- Make it as small and fast as
possible, using only Windows
- Make it easy to use for beginners
and as powerful as possible for advanced users.
- Specialize one module of its
code for simple and reusable
C++ objects that will
provide ready to use application skeletons. A quickly
way to create a dialog
box, SDI or MDI based project.
- Provide simple, but original
features like creating archives, copying these to
a floppy disk or uploading to a server in a few
mouse clicks. Make use and promote Open
Source command line tools.
