    allegro is not a compiler, it's a 3rd party library to the compiler... DJGPP...

    My favorite is still G++ / GCC. But however, I am using Borland... I don't know why!

    I like M$VC++6.

    The IDE is so nice to use.......and its cool for DX. Also MFC is a massive lure......

    I like Borland products generally (Delphi, JBuilder) but for C++ its got to be M$

    maes: Try this to get you going with MSVC without needing DJGPP.

    Download these two files:
    http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/alleg/all3940.zip

    and

    http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/a...ll3940_bin.zip

    Unzip keeping the directory structure. Make sure that they share the base Allegro directory (they both create Allegro.. make sure that that directory conains both zip's contents).

    Run a command prompt (either RUN : command.com or RUN : cmd.com) and navigate to the Allegro directory. (If you need help with this let me know.) Type:

    fix msvc
    msvcmake

    And watch it compile and install. Anser 'Y'es to any questions.

    Hope that helps.

    Once again, I'm going to have to go with my microwave. You input the time into it and it compiles my frozen burrito into a lukewarm burrito.

    I go with DJGPP, it is nice and has many ports (really GCC ports) which makes porting a bit less complex.
