gcc c cross compiler to create linux executables on a windows system

I'm a student and because of several reasons, I need a gcc c compiler which is able to create linux code. This compiler should run on a windows system. It is for a friend of mine who uses a windows system but have to send (for the university course) the c-programs as sourcecode and linux binary files.

This are simple student programs (no graphical gui applications nor system stuff). Is there something available?

well you should be able to, atleast in theory, download something like dev C++

Which nicely bundles a simple, but fairly good IDE with mingw. And after that. Somewhere in options theres a place for commands that are passed to gcc.

Should be as simple as --build=i386-linux-gnu, or maybe its target. Well you'll figure out I guess.
