i m new in c language.plz tell me which compiler is the best GCC or Turbo c...?i m waiting

Unless you're forced by a very backward teaching institution to use Turbo C, or you're maintaining legacy code that must be compiled using Turbo C, GCC (a recent version) is very clearly better.

use Dev C++ as the software to code your programs and you may use gcc as the compiler. I have very good experice with it. start using it. ;)

yeah.. And one more thing i wana add: codeblocks is far better than dev C++ in GUI and usage also.

If the OP is from India he may not have any other choice but to use Turbo C/C++ because sadly that's what is taught in their universities.

agreed

i am damn happy after listeneing this from queen. ;) thanks dani. I also get hope for my success. ;)

Why is this an issue here ? There are several universities around the globe which uses turbo C/C++. Use of Turbo C/C++ doesn't has any one to one correspondence with the geographical location.

Very true

India is the only place where I've read that complaint at DaniWeb over the past 8 years. I wasn't trying to make it an "issue", just a passing comment.

If you are running on Windows and don't want to install Cygwin to get the GCC compiler directly, you can use MingW, which is an open source GCC implementation for native Windows applications. When it came out, TurboC/C++ was the bee's knees, but it is sorely dated now and not particularly standards compliant. GCC is a leader in standards compliance, hence portability.

In fact most universities in the UK use turbo c as well.

Well, at least when I was a freshman, I knew a few compusci students and they had to use turbo c for their c applications.

TBH, it isn't all that bad, the main gripe is the bastardised use of c++ and iostream.h, which was really only used to support cout and cin statements.

But using turbo c for just c is not a bad idea when teaching students, and the graphics library was probably one of the key reasons why it is used.

thanks to replying me now using code::blocks feeling easy and comfortable while writting a code....
