    If you're looking for an alternative IDE to Dev-C++ that is also free you could take a look at Code::Blocks. I havent tried it out myself (only fiddled with it, no real use) and despite its unfortunate name (think writers' block), I've heard that it is pretty good.

    Dev-C++ uses the MinGW port of GCC by default, and Code::Blocks can use that as well as Microsoft's compiler(s).
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Hi,

    Yes, Code::Blocks is cool!

    For Windows C++ development, you can also use this combination of FREE tools:
    Visual C++ 2003 Toolkit
    Platform SDK
    Code::Blocks IDE

    Best Regards,
    Yeoh

    The command line version is free.

    See extract from http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/

    The Visual C++ Toolkit is a free edition of Microsoft's professional Visual C++ optimizing compiler and standard libraries--the same optimizing compiler and standard libraries that ship in Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional!

    If you want to build Win32 GUI programs, you will also need to download the Platform SDK to get the Windows include files and libraries.

    Best Regards,
