My class need us to get a C compiler and an editor.
Any recommendation on the window base software which I can use?
Thanks for your help!

Editor:- Just use a text editor. Most of them (ultraedit/textpad/vim) will have syntax highlighting for the C syntax.

Compiler - Microsoft have released vc++2003 as a free download -
http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/

I'd probably use that. You will need to download the platform SDK in addition to access to some of the tools (nmake) and libraries for doing windows specific things.

I recommend Dev C++. A compact and open source IDE. Here is the link

I recommend the openwatcom compiler
www.openwatcom.org and I use editplus text editor, though I'd have loved to use emacs on the linux platform.

I use the Borland free command line tools: http://www.winprog.org/tutorial/bcpp.html

in conjunction with TextPad:
http://www.textpad.com

The upside of TextPad is that in addition to providing syntax highlighting, you can also compile and run programs from within it. Also, you can use it with other languages such as Java, Python and Perl.

The downside is that it costs $40.

".NET Studio." - a open source editor for .NET is SharpDevelop.
I'm guessing that becasue .NET supports C++, it should then support C. You may be able to write C code and complie with the .NET C++ tools. (Could be wrong here!)

IDE is for Windows platforms only

Anyway if your doing C, you might do well to use the VIM editor.
 
Whatever. Here's a tiny ad:
