C Question

Is there an offline MinGW installer?

I am learning C and I want to install MinGW on my laptop. The MinGW installer is a web-installer, it requires the computer to have access to the internet when installing. But the problem is that my computer's not connected to the internet. So it can't be installed.

So I am thinking of downloading the complete offline installer on my smart-phone and transfering it to my PC through blue-tooth.

I have already tried TDM-GCC, but even that requires me to download somthing.

So is there an offline installer to MinGW? If yes where can I get it?

Answer

I did not find an offline installer for MinGW,but instead I found a better Windows port; which is MinGW-W64

From http://mingw-w64.yaxm.org/doku.php:

Mingw-w64 is an advancement of the original mingw.org project, created to support the GCC compiler on Windows systems. It has forked it in 2007 in order to provide support for 64 bits and new APIs. It has since then gained widespread use and distribution.

Now to answer this question: it has to be mannually installed by downloading the zip file. It won't require additional download.
