gcc works well. free too!
what about Bloodshed Software - Dev-C++ ? or is that strictly for C++?
The Borland compiler itself is free, it's just the IDE that's not (Borland C++ Builder). I've never had any luck getting gcc to work on Windows
omg, I hope you not talking about the server based gcc. My edu made us write and compile code with gcc, and submit it with pine. I wanted to kill myself. It was the SLOWest thing on earth!
I'd try Borland.
Can Visual studio do c? or only c++?
The "server based gcc" is probably just gcc running on a unix server somewhere. I've always found gcc to be much faster than Borland.
I think all C++ compliers will do C as well. As I understand it, C is one step below C++ when it comes to the order of compiling. Not entirely sure--perhaps someone could smack me if wrong.
c++ is broken into asm when compiled
c is broken into asm when compiled
there isnt an "order" they just take a highend language and break it down to asm .
gcc is faster then borland c, but i found borland c was easier to setup... and for some reason i thought when u said borland c, u ment the ide too... my bad.
I used bloodshed and it worked great, but I wasen't doing anything hardcore
borland is nice and free
i persoanlly use MSVC (visual studio) for may main - ide/debugging
C++ is an extension to C. it contains C, with more funtions and more syntaxial(new word!) things like classes name::function, new delete, etc
Yeah, thats what I meant. Thanks.
the bloodshed version is good
I like MSVC++ 6.0 and VS.NET. I also use gcc on our servers at school sometimes.
yea i want to use vs.net on my desktop but my laptop is too slow for vs.net (and i dont even have 1.5 gig space on it lol) so i tried out bloodshed, works great
why does gcc blow? its free just like borland (like u specified)
and all C++ is C with OO designed into it.
