It's a shame it won't work under other operating systems (though it might work under Wine, which would negate that argument), but that doesn't mean it's a bad IDE compared to Dev-C++/GCC.
Like it really matters. Are you that lazy that you can't create a new project?It's quite a bit more complicated. There are extra clicks involved and extra files.
Right, I mix that up because I don't use either of them...Dev-C++. mingw is a Windows port of GCC. Dev-C++ is a GUI (written in Delphi ) that can run GCC, the mingw or the cygwin ports.
But who cares about C99? C++ is superior to C, can do everything C can and more, and it fully supports C++, to an extent far better than C89 and C99.Food for thought -- GCC might not support narrowing warnings, but MSVC doesn't support long doubles, AFAIK. http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread61148.html
That's more important, I think; the warning isn't strictly required, but long doubles are for C99.
Come on... You can compile C code under C++.
