    not sure what you mean by 'facility like eclipse', but Dev-Cpp is also free, lightweight, and fast.

    By facility I mean inbuilt compiler and builtin code structures, debugging facilities...

    I thought Visual Studio Express was free for good, not just 30 days.

    Another one to try is code::blocks
    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.

    to download DevCpp go here.
    you would want the first one in the list 'Dev-C++ 5.0 beta 9.2 (4.9.9.2) (9.0 MB) with Mingw/GCC 3.4.2'. it will come with compiler and debugger. when installing (if you choose to use it) you will be asked something related to code-completion or cache something, make sure to use that feature. it will take a minute or two to build but is helpful.

    i will admit that i think visual studio .NET has the best all-around IDE, even better than eclipse. but if you dont have access to .NET its a little too pricey to purchase.

    i thought so too. im pretty sure i had it on my computer for more than a month, but that was over a year ago. about two nights ago, actually, i was helping someone install it and it said you had to register within 30 days; im not sure if it will expire after then though.. i doubt it since it is called free.

    Hi

    I downloaded Dev-C++ 5.0 beta 9.2 (4.9.9.2) (9.0 MB) with Mingw/GCC 3.4.2.

    I installed it. I made a normal hello world program and tried to compile and run it.

    It compiled successfully but the output window comes and disappears ...I am not able to see output...

    What is problem....

    Please reply..

    Perhaps you downloaded an older version of some other site?

    It was time-limited at one point, when it first appeared, but not any more.

    The answer is in the FAQ.

    As has been said in so many other threads. There is nothing to keep the window open. Add
    Code:
    system ("pause");
    before your return statement, that will keep the window open.

    I've been using Visual C++ 2005 Express for almost 2 years now. They were initially going to make it a trial version, but then decided to just make it free. It doesn't come with a lot of the things that the bought version does, like MFC...

    As Salem mentioned, I'd recommend Code::Blocks. DevC++ is old, no longer updated, and ANSI conformant (annoying if you like, you know current standards, i.e. C99). And Microsoft Visual Studio is just plain evil, sometimes injecting hidden things into your code, bloating it in the name of proprietization (not to mention it too also suffers from ANSIness); it only redeems itself if you are using MFC, which is just more evil in itself.
    So, the only viable alternatively I was left at was Code:Blocks, BUT as an ironic kick in the arse, it too failed me when a nightly build ATE my entire C file after failing to compile, blanking it entirely (it was only after days of help from these good people at your friendly neighbourhood C programming forum that I was able to salvage bits and pieces back from the byte-strewn reckage). But even after all that, I'd STILL go (and still am going) with CodeBlocks (that says a lot right there), as its the best I've found and used to date.

    Never had any serious issues with Code::Blocks, just minor ones like one update cleared out my settings, but never had anything serious go wrong, and you can use MS compiler, MinGW, what ever compiler/debug tools you want, it offers a lot of choice and customization if you want it.
