I am happily using the MinGW compiler (in cross-mingw-gcc) to compile on openSUSE software (EXEs and DLLs) to run on Windows. I have two questions:
1. What is this package: mingw32-cross-gcc-c++
The problem is that the descriptions never tell which is the host and which is the target. It should be inferred from the package name, I guess. The OBS description implies that this is similar to cross-mingw-gcc. Perhaps it is 'just' a newer version of the compiler? cross-mingw-gcc provides 3.3.4, while mingw32-cross-gcc-c++ claims to provide 4.5.1.
2. I am hoping to use gettext() in software running on Linux and Windows. Since I use MinGW (cross-mingw-gcc), I was hoping that the libintl stuff would be present, like so much else of the GNU environment. But, I do not see it. Am I missing something?
