    You could try looking on *this site*. has links to the big ones.

    Or you could google 'free C compiler', and you'd get every major one within the first page.

    Or you could search the forums for any of many threads discussing free compilers.

    If you're not going to even TRY to find the answer yourself, nobody here will help you. Had you done a little research, read some reviews, and then came and asked "Of compilers XXX, YYY, and ZZZ, which do people recommend?" you might get more useful info.

    There's a list of free compilers at

    The Borland compiler is very popular... Somewhere, I read that it was the most popular free compiler... by far! Dev-C++ (and the various other related GNU compilers) is very popular too, and it is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment).

    It's good to start-out with something popular, because it's eaisier to get help... and you might need help. Compilers are always a pain to get configured and working!

    Dev-C++ is very good

    I would vote for Dev-C++, its a great free IDE, but if yo uwanted to try something different you could try Open Watcom: Here . But there are more people using Dev-C++ than watcom so you'd probably be better off with Dev-C++.
    Give me a bad reputation!!!
