Hi there, I'm trying to learn gtk+ using this site[^], But I don't know how to Install and Compile any programs written using this. So far I've downloaded the GTK all in one bundle and extracted it to C:\gtk. I also have mingw installed in C:\mingw and a path variable has also been set.

Please advise me on how to proceed from here as I'm quite clueless.

-Thank you.

Take a look at the documentation for gcc to see how to compile and link. Or type "gcc --help" for assistance.

What do you mean by "I don't know how to Install and Compile any programs"?
Do you have a compiler environment on your system so that you can at least build a basic C++ program? If not get a copy of Microsoft's Visual C++ Express Edition[^] and go on from there.

I'm trying not to use an IDE, I'm looking to just use notepad++ and gcc. What I'm just need to know how to compile a gtk based application through commandline.
