    Code is just text, so all you need it a text editor to write it. To turn code into a running program, you need a compiler. A lot of compilers come with text editors, so you can look for one of them. Visual C++ 2005 Express is what I use, and it's free.

    I'm sorry, but that's not fair. If nlarso doesn't know what to look for then finding it is going to be really hard. That link is good, but instead of slamming him for an honest question, you could have given him a push in the right direction in the same amount of time.

    However he did say that he didn't want to do anything himself and loaded off the whole burden on us to do his job. A push in the right direction: Google

    If he wants to be a programmer, then he needs to learn to use google. Also, there are about 3 million starting programming C guides on the internet. Infact several guides on this very site. I did not slam him, and I did push him in the right direction. Perhaps you should read that link too. When someone is too lazy to search then they are not worth my time and are detracting from the time that could be used helping other people.

    I don't know about others but I would rather have people who want to learn and are willing to teach themselves than people who ask before they search and try and find out on their own. Someone can always come here after searching and ask, hey I found these 3 sites, which would you recommend. I would gladly look through the sites and answer that question.

    I just don't see what's productive about bashing him instead of telling him to search for a compiler. You don't even have to say which compiler, just the word compiler would be enough. His request was what program he needs, not everything to be done for him. I can't decide if you guys are being lazy or just plain mean. You're acting like he was asking for you to write all of his programs so he wouldn't have to do any work...

    He also could have found the answer by searching in less time than it look to register on this site and post the question.

    That says something about how much effort he's willing to put into the whole programming endeavor and how future help is going to be taken.

    All the basic information is out there on the web. There's no need for us to reanswer all these questions. The first link you get when you do a google search for "c programming" is this site. And you know what's on the page for that first link? This:
    Programmers Tools:
    What do I need?
    So, search his ass off is bull......... It looks like he didn't even try a single search at all. And the keywords "c programming" don't exactly take a rocket scientist to figure out.

    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    I apologise. It was presumptuous of me to question my seniors.

    Fake nice attitude or technically accurate answers: pick one. We're not here to make you feel warm and fuzzy; we're here to provide technical help. The best way to do that is to cut through the crap. Newcomers tend to see that as rudeness.

    When we're in good moods we're more cheerful, oddly like the real world. I guess that's understandable since we're real people.

    >and "technical" all the time..
    Well, this is a "technical" forum.

    >and now, even here??? in a programming board??
    "And now"? "Even here?" I hate to break it to you slick, but we've always been like this. If you want to link our behavior with current affairs, more power to you, but it's akin to an art critic completely missing the mark on what the artist was trying to convey.

    okies, im not complaining about anythin here.. but remember, kindness and cheerfulness is like wildfire, it quickly spreads among the bushes.. and if we were all friendly and kind and cheerful in here, who knows? we might be contributing to a better world in a small way..
