Hi all,
I was looking for a free C Compiler. Can you please help me out ??
I have Microsoft Visual Studio installed on my system. But I dont think
they have a C compiler.

For MSVC, the extension of a file counts: if it is '.c' (or some others,
search in the registry), it treats files as C code. There are also
commandline options to force the compiler into either C or C++ mode(/Tc
IIRC).

Other than that, try DevC++. It is based on MingW32/GCC and, other than its
name suggests, it supports C and not just C++, comes with an IDE and
integrated debugger and is free software.

This it Off Topic for this group which is about the C language, not
specific implementations.

<OT>
MS Visual Studio, when invoked using the correct charm, does perform as
a C compiler. Ask in an MS group for information about how to do this.

If you want another C compiler then such things as Cygwin, MinGW and
others will help. Again, look in appropriate groups for them, not here.

Sometimes I think shooting would be far too good for some people.
Although my email address says spam, it is real and I read it.

MS Visual Studio comes with a C compiler. Your system admin may not have
given you access to it tho.
