The main reason I created this thread, is because I'm wondering on which Dev compiler is the C compiler. I see the Dev-C++ Compiler, but I'm unsure if it's the one i'm looking for.
I have done some minor Python coding, but not much. I found it to be complex, and I was advised to start with C instead. From C to C++, and then from C++ to Pearl (i think). So after I read up on C on wiki, I decided to start with it.
So can I use the Dev-C++ Compiler for my C coding? I also use the Windows XP OS, so thats' the major reason I'm interested in their compiler, as it's specifically tailored to the Windows OS. I may download Linux or some other OS in the future, but Win is just my defaulted OS. Maybe I'll have a dual OS on my laptop.
I plan on reading all the (relavent) content on the site, but I like a hands on approach, that's why I want to download a compiler.
