Re: [linrad] OFFTOPIC: C compilers and libraries?

Well, if you are forced to work in an MS Windows enviroment you
can get "cygwin" for free.  Read about it here

Then go here and get it
and get it by clicking the "install now" icon

What you really should be doing is asking about how to get a copy
Linux or BSD UNIX on your PC.  But cygwin will get you most of
what is included with Linux/UNIX.  After installing the basic
system you can them go back and get compiles (C and others) plus
X11 server and 100's of other packages.
