*sigh* then maybe programming isn't for you. I think you should tackle basic computer usage first. ;/

Maybe you are looking for Dev-C++?

Well if it is, then that's an integrated development environment (IDE) rather than a compiler, so he should probably get to know his terminology first. It should also be noted that Wikipedia provided me a list of no less than 13 free-of-charge IDEs, and that Dev-C++ has been effectively abandoned for the last three years. wxDev-C++ is active though, and can effectively be considered the successor to Dev-C++.

Since you raised this again, I'll note that GCC is not actually available natively for Windows (MinGW is typically used in its place) due to the fact that it relies on various GNU userland components that don't exist on Windows. It does work on just about everything else (Linux, BSD, Mac OS X), Windows is just weird like that.

If you want to download GCC for windows you can use Cygwin, all the files you make willl become cygwin.dll dependant, but you can use it in windows.

*Have not tried it so I can be wrong about the cygwin.dll thing.*

meh, for what it's worth, i used Dev-c++'s compiler, but if your using windows, you'll want to get visual studio express. it's free off the microsoft website.

If your using OSX, you should try codewarrior. i think that one was pretty decent.

For any of the *nix systems (linux, BSD, unix, etc), your best bet is probably using pure GCC until your code gets to be bigger than 6 files in which, then i'd probably start using Kdevelop as an IDE, or learn automake if you feel like coding everything without an IDE. If your asking this though , I'm gonna say you're no where near that point where you have to worry about automake, scons, or anything similar.

Well, that's really about all i can contribute.

oh, and if you want to program for the pocketPC, i want to mention that the SDK is available ONLY for the full version of VC++, not the express edition.
