- MinGW, formerly mingw32, is a distribution of the GNU Compiler Collection and GNU Binutils for use in compiling native Microsoft Windows applications. It carries along a set of freely distributable header files and static import libraries to enable use of the Windows API. MinGW can function either as a cross compiler targeting Windows or as a self-hosted toolchain which can be run on Windows itself.
