    depends on what type of computer/os you have...

    try

    www.compilers.net

    they have links to free C compilers you can download. I'm partial to DJGPP.

    You can get a good C-compiler and a debugger from

    http://www.q-software-solutions.com/lccwin32/

    You can make DOS- and WIN-programs but only in standard-C

    Kind regards

    You could also get a book (although you just got one) that has a demo compiler. Not the best, but good to learn on.

    Hi,

    One of the best c-compiler is the gnu-gcc-compiler which is actually for Linux. But you can get a good portation for DOS on the website of DJ-Delorie. There´s also a good c++-compiler.

    If you need gcc for Linux, try a search for example with google.

    DJGPP is fine, but it is too big, try to get TC, from Borland, it's OK.

    What's your budget? If there isn't one or it really doesn't matter than go for MSVC++6.0 Enterprise. Everything you need. It's a programmer's (Windows programmer) home. You can do everything.

    compiler

    Well, I asked the same question and most people thought free was bad and some (I mean Garfield) just tell you to go empty your pockets and help microsoft control the world. I personally do not like delorie because it is Dos based and the only reason i like turbo c++ is because you can edit Wolfenstien 3d but I chose to use both Borland c++ 5.2 and Dev C++ (from bloodshed.net).

    So far they both work well.

    BY THE WAY: What book did you buy?
