    The website for whichever package you choose should have all the instructions you need. Just do a google search for "windows c ide" (I'm assuming you're using Windows, since... well you asked this question).
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Ok that's easy ... Pelles C

    Click the funny red text above... read the page, click downloads... download the newest version for your version of windows... i.e. if you are on a 32 bit version of windows, download the 32 bit version of Pelles C ... current revision is 6.50 .... Save the archive in your downloads folder....

    Now open your downloads folder, click on the archive to begin the installation.

    When the installer completes, look in the start menu for Pelles C... open the help file and start reading.
