    Compiler4windows & making a telephone dial via modem (atdt)

    Hello!

    I would like some help in two things!
    I have some experience in programming microcontrollers with c but i've never set a compiler for windows applications.

    1) So do you know where i find one? I 've heard of gcc? Is it a good one? Where can i find it?

    2) I want to create c program which will create telephone dials via the modem. I have read some things. I also have found this api.

    Has anyone any experience in stuff like this?

    Does anybody know where i could find a tutorial for creating dtmf tones with atdt or something like that?

    There are a lot of questions. I hope you have the time to answer any of these.

    Thanks in advance!

    Goto www.compilers.net for your free compilers
    Borland 5.5, DJGPP, DEV-C++ seem popular choices

    As for everything else, start with google
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Perhaps you could offer more details about why you need a "c program which will create telephone dials via the modem". What is this to be used for? I mention this because sometimes the answer, after many back-and-forth queries, may end up being, "oh, you should just use HyperTerminal" or similar.

    Do you mean a list of AT commands? For tutorials, I'd try Google. Here's one hit.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    First of all thanks for the willingness to help,

    I am developing for my bachelor thesis, and infokiosk (with touch-screen) system which will provide services to the students of my department in the University. I want when the user is searching for a professor, to be able to make a call via the infokiosk.

    So the infokiosk must have a telephone device connected to it's modem and when the users tries to call the professor, the application (developed with Macromedia flash) to call an executable program and create the call.



    Ps. Is gcc only for unix? I can't find a win32 version

    DEV-C++ / DJGPP / mingw / cygwin are all gcc underneath
