    Define easiest.

    I suggest looking at dev-c++ (google it), an excellent IDE that use cygwin or djgpp (I think, I don't use it myself).

    EDIT: Dev-c++ will compile C code. Thought I'd tell you since this is the C board and you might not have known
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    MingW.
    And cygwin is a Linux shell for Windows, when you probably should have bought Linux anyway; it's not a compiler.

    Two qustions:
    1. What do you mean when you say it is a Linux shell for windows? I've read the faq at the cygwin page, but it didn't realy help answer this question.
    2. People buy Linux!?

    1. I was correcting ahluka--cygwin is a Linux shell that runs under the Windows OS, instead of just booting Linux itself.
    2. It is possible. I got a distrobution with a book once.

    I knew you were correcting someone, but my question is 'what is a linux shell'. I'm sure I'm making myself look like a douche, but it's a term I've heard a fair bit and have yet to understand.

    There are some nice commercial Linux distros out there. XandrOS comes to mind. I still like Fedora, though.

    Should I really start confusing the OP about linux shells now? Technically a shell on linux forms a session. The standard output, input, and error from the shell are connected to either a terminal or pseudo-terminal device. The terminal or pseudo-terminal device is what is known on linux (and on most unix derived systems) as the controlling terminal for the session. Now if you aren't totally confused, why is this distinction important? Because linux daemons have no controlling terminal.

    Just thought I would share this moment with you.

    Another nice one is Code::Blocks. Never used it, but I hear it's good.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void J(char*a){int f,i=0,c='1';for(;a[i]!='0';++i)if(i==81){
    puts(a);return;}for(;c<='9';++c){for(f=0;f<9;++f)if(a[i-i%27+i%9
    /3*3+f/3*9+f%3]==c||a[i%9+f*9]==c||a[i-i%9+f]==c)goto e;a[i]=c;J(a);a[i]
    ='0';e:;}}int main(int c,char**v){int t=0;if(c>1){for(;v[1][
    t];++t);if(t==81){J(v[1]);return 0;}}puts("sudoku [0-9]{81}");return 1;}
