Hi bernard:

lcc-win is a good compiler. I know, since I wrote most of it.
Comes with good IDE+resource editor, compiler+linker +debugger.
Project management, utilities included.

Compiler has extensive math library. Language accepted is C99.

Price: Zero dollar and zero cents, for personal use.

Download: http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~lcc-win.

I recommend getting the DJGPP system and gcc. See delorie.com.

That was a good compiler...but I thought it was DOS only and the
development seems to have gone slightly stale. Still...an excellent
compiler from what I recall.

Is the 'lcc' compiler listed below the 'The Digital Mars C compiler'
the same as Jacob's lcc-win?

As I understand it, Jacob Navia took the lcc source code and used it as the
basis for lcc-win32. So the answer to your question is really "it was,
once, but is no longer".

The lcc-win32 compiler /used/ to be on the list, but I took it off when I
realised that the maintainer wasn't particularly concerned about
conformance (a position that he has made abundantly clear on many
occasions by his impatience towards reports of conformance errors in his
compiler). It's a list of C compilers, not a list of "ain't my language
cute and by the way doesn't it look a bit like C?" compilers.

I see you still hold the absurd position that a non-fully-conforming
compiler "isn't a C compiler"... Well well, no need to discuss that
all over again!

I see you still hold the absurd position that C compilers are not obliged
to implement the C language correctly. I don't see how this view excludes,
say, the GFA BASIC compiler from being a C compiler. In fact, I don't see
how it excludes a garden fork or a cup of coffee from being a C compiler.

Is there a good editor that can be used with a 32 bit compiler under the MS-Dos platform? I used to use the Watcom C++ 11 compiler but the editor that came with it (VI if I remeber) was not that great, in fact it was horrible. I'm searching for a Borland C++ style editor and a good C++ 32 bit compiler. Doesn't really matter if the compiler doesn't optimize the code. Thanx in advance... Lovens

I am a student taking a machine structures class in a university, which includes learning C. I am looking for a good freeware or shareware compiler which can be used in a "C only" mode. C++ isn't allowed in assignments, and I would like the compiler to check for C syntax instead of C++ syntax. Besides that, ease of use for a beginner and basic debugging capabilities are important. Suggestions are welcome.

What I like about the C++ object model: that the data portion of the class IS the object (dereferencing an object gets you the data of a POD object). What I don't like about the C++ object model: that most OO features are not available for class object design without loss of POD-ness. So, I'm more than leaning toward "bad" because of the limitations and
