    Vista compiler

    Hi,

    Is bloodshed still good to use with vista premium, or do you recommend another compiler for practicing console c and c++?

    Cheers Tuurbo46

    That compiler is fine, but I would recommend a MS compiler, GCC or LCC.
    For an exhaustive list see http://www.cprogramming.com/compilers.html

    Actually, the Bloodshed Dev-C++ IDE uses the MinGW port of GCC 3.4.x.

    Moving this to Tech since it more of a tool question.

    You are already using GCC. GCC (specifically g++ for C++) is a compiler (collection). Bloodshed's Dev-C++ is an integrated development environment that uses the MinGW port of GCC for the compiler.

    What's wrong with Borland? Last I knew, the latest version of Borland C++ was one of the few compilers that supported the complete C++ language, even the elusive export.
    There is no greater sign that a computing technology is worthless than the association of the word "solution" with it.
