Presentation on MinGw Compiler.
This compiler's continuing goal of minimizing extra DLLs, winpthreads has been compiled statically.
It will be statically linked with every program you compile, mechanism used in libgcc and libstdc++ to allow EXEs and DLLs to share state for handling exceptions
MinGW supports dynamic libraries named according to the .lib and .dll conventions, as well as static libraries following the lib<name>.a naming convention common on Unix and Unix-like systems also.
