    Heh...I'm old skool, chap.

    I'll try your recommendation, can't be any worse than some I have tried (I found Dev-C to be the least annoying and most user-friendly and for some reason it's very hard to get a straight answer from anyone about the "best" IDE to use, especially for beginners).

(i.e. the help file is to die for!)
    I should confess installing and running Pelles C is easier than Eclipse. And to be frank I checked the help file and it is some thing I would go for. Had not heard of it before. For beginners setting up Pelles C is definitely easier than Eclipse. However as anduril462 mentioned you can have any programming language with Eclipse. However setting up might be tricky.

    I recommend what CommonTater mentioned. Go for Pelles C. It is easy to install, easy to use and help file is a great deal.
