allegro is not a compiler, it's a 3rd party library to the compiler... DJGPP...

My favorite is still G++ / GCC. But however, I am using Borland... I don't know why!

(Allegro works with DJGPP, mingw32, borland 5.5, msvc, and so many more I lose count.. for the record.) :)

I like M$VC++6.

The IDE is so nice to use.......and its cool for DX. Also MFC is a massive lure......

I like Borland products generally (Delphi, JBuilder) but for C++ its got to be M$

maes: Try this to get you going with MSVC without needing DJGPP.

Download these two files:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/alleg/all3940.zip

and

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/alleg/all3940_bin.zip

Unzip keeping the directory structure. Make sure that they share the base Allegro directory (they both create Allegro.. make sure that that directory conains both zip's contents).

Run a command prompt (either RUN : command.com or RUN : cmd.com) and navigate to the Allegro directory. (If you need help with this let me know.) Type:

fix msvc
msvcmake

And watch it compile and install. Anser 'Y'es to any questions.

Hope that helps.

Once again, I'm going to have to go with my microwave. You input the time into it and it compiles my frozen burrito into a lukewarm burrito.

I go with DJGPP, it is nice and has many ports (really GCC ports) which makes porting a bit less complex.

Dev c++ is not a compiler, it is a IDE

Golly. That is impressive. I'm hungry. I too, vote for Scourfish's microwave oven.

hmm... i've been interested in Code Warrior for a while... but exactly how crippled is the basic version? As bad as MSVC intro or better?
