    What are some good *free* compilers that include conio.h?

    I finally got back around to trying to program and am thinking about switching to a new compiler. It has become apparent that Bloodshed's compiler will not be of use in avoiding my biggest issue thus far (which I have finally found some solutions for) which has been a clunkiness in the interfaces created in my programs. Thanks in advance.

    In case I forget, I use Bloodshed Dev C++ v.4

    Here's a better solution. Find standard code that doesn't use conio.h.

    you can download conio

    Personaly I like dev! Maby if you want to buy a compiler, other then that, gcc is the way to go.

    you can download conio
    1) The link you gave is for a linux distrubtion so it doesn't have conio.h
    2) Downloading the header file without getting the associated library file does jack. http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/...&id=1043284385

    Also Bloodshed does have conio.h but it doesn't have the extra's that Borland has. But if you want a compiler with that stuff Borland offer's a free compiler.

    I use some of the headers there. And I use Windows / Dev. Never had library probablems before. Sourcefourge has a colection too but that isn't in my bookmarks.
