i use dev-cpp... and its a piecee of crap, i need a new one, so can anyone reccomend one? ya'll are prolly wondering why i say this. well i was doing some windows api programming and it kept compiling it wrong. i would add in my window in the program and it would compile it wrong so i when i ran it only the window was there with thee dos prompt open behind it. it compiled properly on my friends comp (with a different compilier - cant remember what it was)

i have used a hole buch of difrent ones. out of all of them i liked vc++ the best, lots of options and few wired linker errors.

dev-c++ was not bad but i also had a lot of problems when compiling. one of the good things about dev c++ is that i think it has a dos griafickes libiray included with it.

the worest one i have ever used whould be a complty dos only one my old school used. it whould crash all the time and take the computer with it Confused

I say VC++ is better also since most libraries and tutorials are based on it and it's more standard and also because of extra features that it has...

GCC is more standardised than Visual C++ 6, although .NET is catching up. Personally, I use Visual C++ 6, although I have used GCC and Borland in the past.

on the windows platform... VC++/Dotnet are the Standards..

but on other unix/linux platforms it usually is g++/gcc that are the standard compilers..

now if ur writing crossplatform apps.. i think g++ is the obvious choice.. else just use the m$ stuff

i am a bit sick and tired of microsoft. i hate it when everytime i make a small program i have to get all these additional files and folders. so i am sticking to GCC on the windows platform

dev-c++ comes with it, if you don't already have MinGW (minimalist GNU for Windows) installed.

Also, I couldn't agree more than GCC is a better alternative to VC++ 6. 6 is horrible about implementing the C++ standard. Templates won't work right, it'll let you get away with bad things regarding the std namespace, and it has buggy IO libraries.
