    C Editor & Compiler all-in-one?

    Hi, sorry if this isnt related to any coding...
    Im just looking for a program (preferably a freeware) that would act as an editor and would also provide compile and run features. At the moment im using EditPlus for coding, which is great, but to compile it i have to run command prompt, find where the file is located, tell my compiler (Borland) its address and only then compile and run it.
    I have this Dev-C++ software, which seems to have all the features i want, but when it catches errors while compiling it doesnt describe them well enough...
    Any suggestions are much appreciated

    Dev-C++, Code::Blocks, Microsoft Visual Studio Express are all free in terms of needing to be paid for, and do what you ask for (at least as well a Borland). The term freeware probably don't quite apply to any of the products, as the first two are "GPL" (Gnu Public License) and the latter is some sort of MS license. But from a "pay for" standpoint, they are all free.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    have the same problem with dev c++ .... most of the time it only takes a few minutes to figure out what the error is meow .... sometimes longer. I would say that is the down side of dev c++.

    One thing borland once gave was a WYSIYG dialog editor with a nice gui. But it did not really contain everything needed for win api progs.

    I've never used the first two, but I use VC++ 2005 at work (and the free express version at home) and debugging is simple. If you get a compile error, press F6 and it takes you right to the line where the error is. If you don't know what the error means, it always has a code like "C4329" at the beginning, so if you do a search for that code on google, you'll find plenty of info about it.

    Hi Folks,

    Check this site
    http://www.objectcentral.com/

    You will find VIDE, an editor (IDE) for C, C++

    The site explains on how to install and configure the same for Borland C (which I am currently using).

    Cheers
