First off i'd just like to say im really new to C. We are just about to start it soon in uni and our lecturer recommended a book for us. I decided to get it and do some reading up before we start. The book i got was "C Programming in easy steps" by Mike Mcgrath.
I started reading and it said i need to install a compiler on my system. It reccomended MinGW. I downloaded this and ticked the "g++" and "MinGW base tools" like it said. It then told me to add this too my system path. So i went to Control Panel > System > Advanced > Environment Variables. I found the "Path" and added ";c\minGW\bin; like it said. It then said if i go to cmd and type gcc - v I should get information about it, but i dont. It says "gcc is not a recognized as an internal or internal command, operable probram of batch file.
Im not sure what im doing wrong and i thought you guys would be able to help, thanks.
