    Question Whats A Good Compiler?

    Im using Dev-C++ 4.9.9.2, And iv followed alot of tutorials and ones what work for sure just wont because of stupid errors it outputs. Such as when you try to include files it says stupid errors. So can anyone tell me of a good compiler,
    Thanks For Anything.

    The best 3 compilers I know of ATM are:-

    Microsoft visual c++ 7.1(2003)
    Comeau c++
    Kai c++

    Get one of those you will be just fine.

    A better solution is to figure out what's wrong, perhaps by asking.
    After all, if it is a mistake on your part (or on the part of the tutorial author), then switching compilers wont make a difference.

    no becuase its mostly
    Code:
    include "header.h"
    and Dev C++ is outputting it as an error for some stupid reason.

    What reason might that be?
    Posting your compile log often helps.

    if you want (C)oolness (Y)ou (G)et (W)here (I)nitially (N)one then download cygwin!!!
    its a unix like environment for windows, so you can use many unix tools like gcc

    afaik the intel c++ compiler is good, since it does a good job on inserting simd (mmx, sse, sse2) instructions.

    Erm, the latest one
    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.
