Dev-C++ is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment).
It can be downloaded with the Windows port of GCC (know as MinGW). It can also used with the Cygwin compiler.
It is not however, a compiler itself.

that is to say, I'm using GCC without paying any attention on it. I always consider Dev as a independent compiler. :D

Dah.. as taylor said, it is NOT a compiler. It provides an interface for editting code, compiling, and linking. It does not actually do the compiling or linking itself.

as taylor said, the compiler of it should be GCC. ;)
