On March 22 (PST) we will be performing site maintenance on the database to improve performance, which requires taking down the website for a short period of time. The work is being done between 9pm-12am PST (3 hours), but we will only have a maximum of 1 hour of down time. We do not know exactly when within the 3 hours window we will be down. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

To configure a C compiler for Eclipse in Windows, follow these steps:
2) Open the resulting mingw-get-setup.exe file and click Continue until you get to the Installation Manager.
3) Select mingw32-base and choose Mark for Installation.
4) Under the Installation menu, choose Apply Changes and then Apply. Wait for the process to complete.
5) Open Eclipse and navigate to the Preferences option under the Window menu.
6) Under C/C++, find the New C/C++ Project Wizard option. For the Hello World ANSI C Project option, choose the MinGW GCC toolchain, and click Make toolchain(s) preferred. Press OK.
7) To create a new project, select the File menu and choose New C Project.
8) In the Project Type area, choose Hello World ANSI C Project, and specify a project name. Press Finish. This will create a .c file inside a folder named “src.”
9) Open the exercise file and copy and paste the contents into the .c file created inside of your project, replacing the contents.
