# Windows mingw graphical compiler

Is there a simple graphical(GUI) mingw compiler for windows that only lets us compile and return errors if any. I don't want a full-featured IDE I just need a compiler.

If there is any plug in that can interact with atom to accomplish this task it would be appreciated.

• Please don't recommend an IDE like Code Blocks – Aditya ultra Jun 23 '15 at 6:57
• What do you mean by "graphical" - you don't want an IDE, but what do you want? To click on error & jump to the offending code? Or is it enough just to compile from the command line & see the output there? – Mawg Jun 24 '15 at 14:05
• I've never heard a "graphical compiler". All the compilers are command line applications, with the IDE or text editor do the calling under the hood if necessary – phuclv Sep 5 '18 at 4:58
