For all who need a C/C++ compiler...

I would recommend Dev-C++. Go to http://bloodshed.net/dev/devcpp.htmlto check it out or http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/d...devcpp4980.exe to download it. It is a Windows (there is a early Linux release located at http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/d...ar.gz?download) IDE built to work with the Mingw32 compiler.

All you need to do is install the IDE/Compiler by clicking the exe (or untarring the tar.gz file for linux) and it will ask you some things on what to install, and after that, it'll start installing... which afterwards you are all set. You should have many (if any) problems, I never have.

It supports ISO/ANSI standard C/C++ and Windows API (also with vUpdate, you can add graphics libraries like allegro etc.) and has the nicest IDE ever! Some have claimed it better than Visual C++, and it's free! (The only downfall is it doesn't support MFC, but MFC reaks havoc to code) Well, I'm probably just confusing you all, so just download and see for yourself...

Some alternatives are:
Hope this helps :)
