C Compiler and text editor help

I started reading from the book "C Programming language". I'd like to be able to write the examples as I read, as I did with BASIC, but the book doesn't teach you how to do that.
I know that any text editor will do, and a compiler for C, or an IDE. Could you tell me what do you use to write C programs, and if it's freeware, where can I get it?

Re: C Compiler and text editor help

I can tell you what I use on Windows:

  • mingw32 (includes a port of GNU C Compiler; you can try also cygwin)

  • SciTE (simple but extensible text editor; also Notepad++ is very good and comes with lots of plugins)

You can find those programs by googling them.

Windows - Microsoft Visual Studio
Mac - Xcode

All you really need. smile mingw32 is a pain in the ass to set up, and harder to use, but some prefer it. "The C Programming Language" probably has compilition directions for it, but MSVC isn't hard to figure out. SciTE is just a text editor, so that's no good. smile


Iritscen: roll
Iritscen: it's amazing this program even works
Gumby: i know
Iritscen: and that statement applies to my code, not just yours

Re: C Compiler and text editor help

^ Yes they usually can.

For Windows I have visual studio and dev c++. no idea about the compiler, I didn't programmed much in the windows.
For linux I used gedit at first, and then eclipse that is a dream compared to the last. =P the compiler was gcc.
