How do I write native windows code with MinGW? Getting POSIX calls to 

 From the MinGW web page <quote..>
MinGW compilers provide access to the functionality of the Microsoft C 
runtime and some language-specific runtimes. MinGW, being Minimalist, 
does not, and never will, attempt to provide a POSIX runtime environment 
for POSIX application deployment on MS-Windows. If you want POSIX 
application deployment on this platform, please consider Cygwin instead.

Exactly what I want – Let me explain. I followed the directions for a 
new instillation. I have a Linux program that works in Linux. It will 
also work in Cygwin. The program has several POSIX calls that I know 
windows does NOT support (getopt(), glob(), ...). I tried compiling this 
program with MinGW expecting errors --- but to my surprise it compiles, 
links, and runs. Clearly, it has linked with some libs that provide 
POSIX – how do I get Windows and nothing but windows?
