    Thanks for the list.

    I downloaded M$ Visual C++ 2008 Express, and the MSDN library too. That's alot of software for free. And the amount of documentation is staggering, which is terrfic, compared to bare-bones Dev c++.

    I have devoted a whole week to reading the documentation on how to actually use it to make C programs.
    OS: Linux Mint 13(Maya) LTS 64 bit.

    > 7zip does not fully support rar. Rar does not fully support 7z.
    That's because of the moronic Rar licence. So go with 7z instead :-)

    Oh yes, I always do. 7z rocks!
    happyclown: You picked a good IDE there. Visual Studio has C/C++ capability with a very good compiler and even a debugger!

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
