 +==== How to Compile Tor using MinGW ==== 
 +Building TOR having a **static** executable is described below. If you are familiar with Linux shells, it is easier for you. Follow the instructions below. If you have any problem, do not hesitate to ask. I put lots of environment variables and compiler/​linker flags to be on the safe side even if they are useless. Let me know if anything is unnecessary. If you do not need a static executable, just visit tor website and download tor expert bundle.

 +# these instructions are for x86 computers, for x64 you know what to do :) 
 +# install msys2 from http://​​ 
 +# after installation,​ open msys2 console and install some useful packages (msys2.exe) 
 +# visit wiki pages of msys2 for further information

 +# a library for stack protection.
