Forgive me if this is posted somewhere. I did look for it. I've started my class in c and have visual studio pro 2008 installed, but my prof says I also need a c compiler. So my question is, is there a c compiler already installed or do I need to get one? If I need to install a separate compiler which do you suggest? I've read some post that lead me to believe there is already a c compiler built into VS. I can ask my prof tomorrow, but want to mess around today so any help would be appreciated.
