    best C compiler/ide

    Hi!
    I'm just a newbye in C programming.
    I'd like to know wich C compiler/ide would be recommended: I've been told Turbo C is free, but not very easy to use... Meanwhile Open Watcom C/C++ has been refered to me as quite good, but each source file must be compiled on a separate project...

    I appreciate any help!

    Thanks.

    Big list:

    Easiest option is to get DevC++: http://www.bloodshed.net. Doesn't take a lot of effort.
    System: Debian Sid and FreeBSD 7.0. Both with GCC 4.3.

    Where did you hear about Turbo C? Turbo C is a stone age compiler!

    I'd add MS Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition to that list. It's a nice IDE. Sucks for C99 though (well, MinGW too).
