    Dev-C++ is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment).
    It can be downloaded with the Windows port of GCC (know as MinGW). It can also used with the Cygwin compiler.
    It is not however, a compiler itself.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?

    that is to say, I'm using GCC without paying any attention on it. I always consider Dev as a independent compiler.

    Dah.. as taylor said, it is NOT a compiler. It provides an interface for editting code, compiling, and linking. It does not actually do the compiling or linking itself.

    as taylor said, the compiler of it should be GCC.
