View Full Version : C Compilers?
20th Feb 03, 1:03 PM
Beginning to learn C for the first time, I have a very decent selection of tutorials and believe I can go ahead, but I cannot find, no matter how long or hard I look, a decent compiler.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Free would be best, but I'm willing to shell out a some cash.

CygWin, GCC, or the Borland compilers are prolly the best.
P.S. Aquarius, I'm also looking to learn C++ - mind giving a link(s) to the site(s) you got tutorials from?

Well, I've found an ebook, an actual book (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0131103628/qid=1045847990/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_1/103-2407260-9605441) (family member snagged it at a local bookstore for 20 USD), nine here (http://www.programmingtutorials.com/tutorial.asp?id=C) and I have also found this (http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial.html). Most are just C, but the latter is for C++.
Another question. After C and C++, I'd like to learn some others. What would be suggested? I already have a decent understanding of HTML.
(Edit) Oh, you can find some more C++ tutorials here (http://www.programmingtutorials.com/tutorial.asp?id=cplus), Assimilator.

Thx a *LOT* for the tutorials!
Well, you *could* try learning PHP (http://www.php.net/) - it's a C-style language that's embedded into web pages (like these forums).
PHP can be used to access databases, read/write files, create images and PDF (Adobe Acrobat) files... it really is a versatile language. It's like C/C++, but for web pages. (Better than crummy ol' Perl!)

Just posting to say I apologize I had not posted earlier with my thanks, Assimilator. I did not notice your reply until just now. Thank you.

No probs... it's nice to find someone on the Internet who actually has the decency to say "thank you".
And who can spell.

If you are intending to get a job writing code learn the following:
Almost everything is written in C++ these days. You need to dream C++ code.
This a really good Windows centric language.
Okay, I'm kidding about this one, almost nobody uses this any more, but you get bonus points if you know what it is and why it is to be feared.
