TBB and Mingw compiler

Hello everyone,

I have to develop an app under Windows and I want to make it concurrent. My initial idea was to use TBB since I already have some experience with it under Linux. However, searching the  web I have found that it is only fully supported for VS. I have to use the MingW compiler, madatory; so I was wondering if there is any chance of use TBB with Mingw.

Thanks and best regards!.

>>so I was wondering if there is any chance of use TBB with Mingw... Yes and there a couple of reports that it was done. MinGW C/C++ compiler is a Windows version of GCC and TBB library could be built with GCC compiler on many Linux platforms.

Hi Sergey, thanks for your quick reply.

So should I compile like I was doing under Linux, specifying the paths with -L and -I?. I'm a totally noob in Windows development, so this is hard for me to work out. :)
