    C# compiler???

    What compiler can/do you use to compile c# code? I have looked through this c# forum but have found nothing and I can't find anything on microsofts web site. Does c# book by charles petzold use win32 as the api? If so then is it better to learn win32 using c# thatn c?

    The C# compiler is included in the free .NET Framework SDK:

    If you need an IDE, I guess MS Visual Studio is the best. There might be some free IDEs around, check the links in the sticky thread.

    C# does not use the WinAPI, it uses the .NET Framework which is a different set of classes not unlike MFC but a lot easier to use and more powerful.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    If you plan on writing C# code, picking up VS.NET is your best choice.

    If your only just getting into it and don't have money to spend downloading the framework with the SDK should be good enough, or I belive you can order the cd if you have a bad/slow connectin though I've downloaded on my 56k.
