Converting gcc output to msvc one

Some time ago I was using Microsoft Visual Studio IDE to compile project with MinGW. Everything was fine except the output of the gcc. When some error or warning was printed to the output console, I was unable to go to source code line with mentioned error/warning by simply clicking it in the output console window.

I created simple ruby script converting gcc errors/warnings output lines into Visual’s compatible one.

The script can be found here.

Usage and sample output you can see in the below screen shot.

    Did you ever get debugging to work with your setup?

      Not really. I’m terminal geek, so terminal was enough for me to use gdb (or cgdb which is better in terms of visualization). If you want to use IDE, you can try Netbeans (all debugging can be done in it). I was using it for some time, but it was a little bit slow back then (comparing with terminal), maybe it’s better now.
