One way to get gcc running in Windows is to install Cygwin. It will provide a Linux-like environment ... cheers, makyo

I guess you could use Bloodshed Dev-C++ (for both C and C++). It uses MinGW GCC and is probably the best IDE out there. (IMO)

the executable format in linux is rpm?
RPM is a package manager. There's not really an 'executable format' in Linux (there's no particular extension by which you could tell a file can be executed, unlike .exe in Windows).
