    Dev C++ is not really a good choice. unless you're already committed to using it, new users should probably choose something that hasnt been abandoned by it's creator.

    The project is no longer noticeably active, with no news posted nor any updated versions released since February 22, 2005.


    Code::Blocks is a better alternative. though if you're doing real development, you should probably be using gcc or MSVC depending on your platform, and not MinGW.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    segmentation fault
    gvim + gcc + gdb (or ddd)

    Don't want or need an IDE, but in that case you probably want a nice terminal for compiling in (I always import the XFCE Terminal no matter what window manager I use).
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    In my sig too. Emacs (and at work, SlickEdit...bleh) for IDE. CMake at home and various bastardizations of Make at work. GDB, strace, et all to debug at home; at work we kinda have to use the force (its embedded). GCC in both places. The bottom line though is it doesn't matter what you use as long as you are productive with it; *that* is the best IDE, etc for you my friend. Some folks could not stand coding outside of Visual Studio; others would rather have needles shoved into their eyes if that was all they could use. It is a highly personal thing. Put it this way: aren't you glad you have a choice in the matter?
    C/C++ Environment: GNU CC/Emacs
    Make system: CMake
    Debuggers: Valgrind/GDB
