C Compiler - which should I use?

I have some C Source Code ... and I need to compile it.

It says something about using CC ... but it can be compiled with any C Compiler.

I already have MS Visual Studio 2003 ... do I already have a C Compiler?

What are the steps to get this "CC" compiler setup? (I don't want to compile a compiler...)

Thanks!

Visual studio is a ide and it comes with a compiler, debugger and many more.

If you are into windows programming VC++ is best but you also have choice like borland.

If you are in Linux/Unix world GCC is good.
Infact GCc even works in Windows.

see
www.mingw.org
www.cygwin.com

Intel Compiler is also good.

I use gcc almost all the time except in Office i have no choice other that Visual studio. :)

If you have Visual C++, you also have a C compiler. It compiles both C and C++, depending on whether the file extension is .c or .cpp.

This is a short and sweet, but (hopefully) to the point article. There seems to be some fundamental misunderstanding about the function prototype for the "main" function in C and C++, more specifically what type this function should return. I see so…
