I have installed all three GNUstep MSYS System, GNUstep Core, and

and C++. Will it be able to compile Objective C having GNUstep


It certainly won't be able to recognize .m extension. It's best to write GNUmakefiles manually, then perhaps create a .bat file and an item in Tools menu for Code::Blocks. 

Alternatively, just use Notepad++ or similar utility to write both source and GNUmakefiles, then compile it from MSYS's shell.

One more question, I also need to install Cygwin for running some
other simulation software. Any idea that GNUstep provides the
same environment as Cygwin? If not, any idea if GNUstep
may conflict with Cygwin.

I'm not sure, but the README files should say something about this.

I think the compiler will conflict. You could probably be best off compiling GNUstep under Cygwin, I'm pretty sure that will work, as long as their GCC supports Objective-C. (You can test by writing a piece of pure C code, but compiling it with "gcc -x objective-c inputfilehere -o program.exe".)

GNUstep components are compiled in the following order:
- gnustep-make
- gnustep-base
- gnustep-gui
- gnustep-back
(Someone please correct me if I got anything wrong.)
