So I have a book on C but have Dev-C++ IDE and was wondering if I could learn C from that book whilst using the Dev-C++ IDE? Many thanks in advance!!

Dev-C++ uses the MinGW compiler, which can compile both C and C++, so yes, you can program C with Dev-C++.

Great. Many thanks for replying..it's much appreciated!!

Recomended free IDE seems to be however Code::Blocks for cross platform or Microsoft's free for testing VC Express.
