    Can you be a little more specific?

    I have three different compilers on my system. If you mean "Will the same code work for different compilers?" Then the answer would depend on the sort of programming you are doing and in any case would probably be no. But if you mean "Can I install more than one compiler without my machine exploding?" then the answer would be yes.
