    Help kids program ...

    I want to write a application in "C" a small application for small kids.
    This has to be installed in computers all OS. The application when double clicked will seek number and do add and substract. Very simple but i am beginner. Please tell me how.

    Please seek advice in telling me which compiler and linker to download, I just have Internet and cannot afford to buy compiler/linker or IDE. So please advice me on how to download a good free compiler and linker.

    2. Once i get the executable, i want to make it application so that i send it online to various schools to install and execute like many experts applications here.

    Regards

    So you'll need a copy of every OS to compile, link and test.

    Yeah, because just sending an executable to a school and expecting them to open it because you're just such a nice guy, is a realistic expectation...

    Kids won't be interested in a command line program - they'll need a GUI.

    I might suggest you use XHTML / CSS / Javascript to do this, and that way, you can throw it up on a web page from anywhere.
