How are some compilers different?

When i procure source code, i am unable to compile it using DevC++ program. The source would normally say which compiler the code works on.  Why is it that C compilers are different?...and how?

C has very limited set of functioanality standardized. e.g. there are no routines to control output console and hence programmers have to depend on libraries like conio and ncurses. It is portability of these calls which causes problems.

Can you post first few errors here. We should be able to make out the real cause from those errors.
