What editor and compiler for C is used in Ubuntu?

There are a lot of editors (many many of them) for C. But I personally use either "Eclipse" or "Vim" editors. Eclipse is actaully an IDE but Vim is an editor. You can also configure Vim in linux to compile your program. Both are amazing editors.

Sorry, I forgot to add CodeBlocks. It's a very good IDE too. Easy to use and handles your project files very nicely.

For small C projects I use Gedit or Vim anything larger and I would switch to C++ and Qt Creator or KDevelop.

I initially used 'Geany' a lightweight editor(Not a memory hog) and now using 'Vim'.

When it comes to compilers for linux, gcc is the most common, and it comes installed with ubuntu.
