Title: [Solved] GCC
Post by: theblade on January 02, 2014, 02:18:02 pm
Hello. What's the difference between "mingw32-gcc" and "mingw32-gcc-4.8.1"? Which of these two should I use to compile a file? They're both the same size.

It depends if you have the official version or the tdm version.
On the official version, files differences are very weak (only a few bytes !). On the tdm version, they are exactly identical.
Nevertheless, you can use one or the other, it does not matter.

I'm using the TDM version. Ok so they're identical, but why they put two GCC's?

One of the reason is probably that you can use different versions of gcc in the same folder, so with different names, for testing purposes ...
