You can trivially acquire a gcc-4.7+ or clang-3.x from mingw-w64, or a
gcc-4.6-ish from TDM.

Whether they and their gdb meshes into the ad-hoc madness interfaces
that GCC-using IDEs, that's a different thing of course.

They work reasonably well for me with Qt Creator which I resort to when
I have to do C++.

Eclipse CDT was utterly about a year ago, with multi-second pauses as
you type into a C++ source file, eventually resulting in
"internal error while displaying internal error".
