What compiler are you using?

You don't really need one.

Type in the command you use to edit a program.
When the program is ready, type in the command your compiler suggests to compile the program.
When compile is clean, type in the program name and it runs (or blows up, depending on how good your code is :icon_wink:)

Why do you want to use text editor, when you have a good IDE's. Try Dev-C++.

Because if you aren't helped by an IDE, you have to watch what you're doing and actually learn the language by heart. As a starting point it can take you closer to mastery, much more quickly.
