    CodeBlocks with MinGW or Pelles C are two common ones.

    AFAIK... Code::Blocks does not yet come in or support 64 bit flavours.

    It supports 64 bit compilers and runs under Windows 64 bit.

    Yes it does... but in my experience, hooking up a new compiler to Code::Blocks exists on about the same level of revulsion as Root Canal.

    For an experience programmer, familiar with toolchains and compiler flags, it's a whole lot easier than it is for a rookie who's just trying to get hello world to work on his shiny new 64bit computer.

    I never really understood why people find it so hard.
    But, I learned to program in "C" on the command line using K&R era compilers.

    Take any of the "new generation" of Windows users...
    Tell them to hit WIN+R ....

    Watch the blank stares.

    No one person in mind... but...
    On average, Windows users are some of the most undertrained operators you're going to find. The command line mystifies them, regedit scares them, help files are agents of the devil, changing settings makes them sweat and I'd take it as a safe bet that 80% of software in use is running purely on defaults.

    It's not that they find it especially hard... it's a whole lot more like "fear of the unknown"...

    Really why? I literally just tell Code Blocks I want to use compiler foo and it finds whatever I'm looking for; it's probably the gentlest root canal in history.

    Try picking a compiler it doesn't have pre-configured... like Pelles C ... or Virtual Pascal ... Good luck with that!

    Why does it have to be a 64bit edition?

    Because it sounds very much like what an employee at Best Buy would say about a 64 bit OS "all the software has to be 64 bit."

    But another employee from that same store told me, when I was looking at a 32bit system that I would need to upgrade the RAM to 8GB and that "it is just a bug" that 32bit OSs don't read past 4GB.


    But I run Code Blocks just fine from my 64bit system.

    Clearly the IDE doesn't need to be 64 bit... and a 32 bit compiler still works too. But if you want to produce 64 bit code to take advantage of the larger memory footprint, at least the compiler and OS has to be 64bit.

    Not sure what's the state of MinGW 64-bit now, but back when I used it 2 years ago, it was still very experimental. I had to build it from source.

    But first, why do you NEED 64-bit? Like mentioned above, 32-bit tools work just fine. You'll only need 64-bit if you do high performance computing with large numbers, or need more than 4GB memory.

    Red face just use gcc as usual
