    Question: Which Compiler????

    Ive just started programming in C and was just wondering which compiler would you recommand me to use and where i can get it from... i would prefer one thats easy to use and works quite well.

    Ive heard from a lot of people that Borland is no good?

    And im running win2k at the moment

    Cheers,
    MaBo

    If you are looking for a Compiler for DOS, I prefer Turbo C (TC), but ofcourse from Borland. It has been my favourite. Here's a link to download it: http://community.borland.com/article...,20841,00.html

    Well Borland Turbo-C for DOS is not really the thing you want to be running in win2k

    Get one that can support any platform you want to work on, as well as the ability to support (or be expanded to support) platforms you *might* want to work on in the future.

    And then, most importantly, get a compiler with these features:

    C/C++
    Disassembly
    Preprocess
    Inline Assembler
    Debugger
    Profiler

    Also very good is the GCC package. A C and C++ compiler and some tools can be downloaded from:
