    From where I can download GNU gcc 4.3.3 version of compiler for windows?

    hello all,

    I want a gcc 4.3.3 compiler files for a windows machine. i have done googling but not found the required version. even if i found ,there are archives with different file sizes with different never seen file extensions and not sure if they made for linux or windows. And some downloads, don't have any "bin" directory inside of that.


    requirement : GNU gcc 4.3.3 for windows 32 bit
    i have to set a path to a "bin" directory inside of that package or a folder cum files whatever u call it.

    please do the needful ? single click download link from your side will be great.

    thanks

    Just type "sudo apt-get install gcc" at line command, otherwise you you prefer using some GUI based interface, make a search of all GCC available options from within Synaptics tool.

    Isn't GCC up to version 7.something?
    Are you asking for a very old version?

    Re: From where I can download GNU gcc 4.3.3 version of compiler for windows?

    I would start with http://www.mingw.org/ then download the GCC program from https://gcc.gnu.org/

    The current version is 7.30 but it should be backwards compatible with all previous versions. You might find an archive with 4.3.3 in it but it would be more sensible to uses the latest version instead.

    Re: From where I can download GNU gcc 4.3.3 version of compiler for windows?

    As I suspected, the file dates are over 9 years old.

    GCC is written for Linux not Windows, that's why you will need additional support from Cygwin to help it run. With Linux, GCC is usually included with the OS files so it is there and ready to use without any installing.

    Several compression/decompression programs for Windows can extract the files but I don't think Windows can do it natively. I think you will have to install 'Winzip', '7zip' or 'PowerArchiver' to do it, there are probably several other programs too as the format is very commonly used.

    Thanks for the cygwin help !! this website speaks the same (( ref link:http://preshing.com/20141108/how-to-...cc-on-windows/))

    i installed it and tried the command
    wget http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/gcc/gcc-4.3.3/gcc-4.3.3.tar.gz. luckily, it downloaded 73 mb file .
    after extraction , i found that i have to build it . i did it with a command
    ../gcc-4.9.2/configure --program-suffix=-4.3.3 --enable-languages=c,c++ --disable-bootstrap --disable-shared
    $ make -j4 // it has taken 5 hrs of compile time but end up with a make errors and exited.
    now tried this command
    $make install // ( i tried this command as explained in ref link and it seems started working busy, but dont know how long will it take)

    I'm not sure, and I have no way to confirm my suspicion, but I think that builds GCC version 4.9.2 but names it as version 4.3.3.

    It's a catch 22 situation, GCC is compiled with GCC! By mixing versions it may not work as expected. If you can't make it compile, there is an alternative to Cygwin you could try called "MinGW" which I believe has the compiler already included in the package, http://mingw-w64.org might help but probably only with a later version of GCC.

    A further option is to run it in a real or virtual Linux environment. It isn't a crazy as it sounds as GCC is included (is necessary for it to work!) in many Linux versions and they can be run either in a virtual machine or booted directly from a USB stick or CD/DVD. Because Linux can read and write Windows partitions, you can load and save source files in a Windows folder but do the compiling in real Linux. Booting Linux from USB or CD/DVD does not install anything on your hard disk, when you have finished using Linux, just reboot the computer and apart from any files you compiled and saved, Windows is oblivious that anything ever happened. Bear in mind that Linux is free to download and use and in my opinion far more user friendly than Windows. Booting Linux from a USB3 stick takes about 30 seconds less than booting Windows from hard disk on my machine but from optical media it could be quite a lot slower.

    gcc version 4.4.0 and 4.5.x were only ported and are avaialble for windows . (this is native and not cygwin)

    version 4.3.0 only alpha.
