    Do a search of the board. This question has been answered countless times.

    Really, though, you've got a fine compiler and IDE already.

    What's the criteria to determine the Worst compiler? Doesn't compile c++ code, crashes on start-up?, forces you to type the source code in backwards :-)

    Compiles a different language.

    In reality, GCC (the actual compiler that comes with Dev-C++) is a very fine compiler that is in very wide use (on many platforms and even for commercial development).
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I'm pretty sure Miracle-C comes pretty close to being the worst.
    Dev-C++ is certainly up amongst the best, without spending huge $$$
    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.
