Beginner question.. wich compiler
I just started out with C and beginning to like it :) .. With the help of "The C Programming Language" by Kernighan and Rithie I certainly have the feeling it will all work out..
Question though... what is a good compiler/editor to use ..
Right now I have NANO & GCC on my linux box (which is fine .. don't really code much there)
On my windows box I'm currently using Pelles C. I also tried Visual Studio Express but it's so big :P ... I feel like I'm trying to eat soup with a shovel instead of a spoon with visual studio ;) .. Is it worth while trying to work things out in visual studio or is it best to stay with a plain simple compiler like pelles?
also is it ok to use C++ compiler for C coding ?? I know it works in most cases.. But since I'm learning C from scratch I don't want to end up knowing C but having C++ habits because of the compiler. most compilers I've tried do not have a C option only C++ ..
