    borland c compiler is difficult than turbo c .
    so better u can use turbo c...

  • the best compiler is of Linux. other than that, try ms compilers for best results on windows.

    dear, does linux really provides its own compiler i thought it used "borland" compiler

    and just tell me is ANSI C also a compiler.

  • Turbo C is the best

    For industries, they mostly prefer Vc++.. Because of its functionalities

  • dear friend not answered the other query that whether ANSI C is also compiler
    Wednesday, March 7, 2007 5:39 PM
  • Yes, it is also compiler... frnd..

  • if u are a beginner then turbo c and turbo c++ will be effective...but once u master the c language, u can go to vc++ in windows and gcc under linux....these ar the two best compilers.....

  • i think a better compiler is all about providing more functionality and support for newer version of identifiers and operators. i am correct.

  • Some good C compilers are

    Dev C++,

    MS VC++,

    Borland C v7,

    Eclipse,

    GCC etc

     

     

     

    Turbo C is the worst and outdated compiler of c and is virtually of no use at present.

  • Well, as far as I know, ANSI C is just a standard, not a compiler by itself. When someone says he's using a ANSI C/C++ compiler, he doesn't mean it to be the compiler's name. It just means that whatever compiler he is using adopts and complies to ANSI C standard.
    As far as the best C compiler is concerned, I think the following list would do:
    1. Turbo C for a beginner programmer who wants to learn the language
    2. Visual C++ for those who are in need advanced functionalities and don't mind spending some money
    3. Bloodshed Dev C/C++ for those who need some functionalities of Visual C++ but can't afford (or think the purpose isn't worth) the money
    4. gcc for the geeks who can learn the command line compilation and who need raw power

  • The Miracle C Compiler runs under MS-Windows targeting the command line / DOS. All traditional C syntax is implemented, including record (struct/union) and enumerated data types, int, long and floating point data types, user type definition. There is a comprehensive library of functions; some example programs demonstrating compiler features; and Windows Helpfile documentation is supplied with the package.

    Miracle generates object for Microsoft or compatible linker (such a link facility is builtin to the Workbench). The workbench enables the user to develop code with multi-window editor featuring syntax colouring, from which write, compile and build operations are launched.

    MCW is an ideal beginner's compiler due to its ease of use, while provision of source code to registered users gives an insight into real world compiler design for a common operating system.

  • Bloodshed Dev-C++ is a full-featured Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the C/C++ programming language. It uses Mingw port of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) as it's compiler. Dev-C++ can also be used in combination with Cygwin or any other GCC based compiler.

    Features are :

    - Support GCC-based compilers
    - Integrated debugging (using GDB)
    - Project Manager
    - Customizable syntax highlighting editor
    - Class Browser
    - Code Completion
    - Function listing
    - Profiling support
    - Quickly create Windows, console, static libraries and DLLs
    - Support of templates for creating your own project types
    - Makefile creation
    - Edit and compile Resource files
    - Tool Manager
    - Print support
    - Find and replace facilities
    - CVS support

  • Turbo C is good for beginners with inbuilt graphic support

    GCC is standard ANSI C/C++ so use for professional C++ projects

    MS VC++ also being a standardized MS product but it has some drwabacks and glitches in code design issues and difficult to master

    DJGPP a best port of GCC and provides upport for Graphics usinf Allegro and also protected mode programming

    Borland C++ provides a good support but it adds some bloated code and increases final code size..

    I hope that gives you a good review..

    I will recommend DJGPP or GCC for beginners go for DevC++

  • SDCC is a Freeware, retargettable, optimizing ANSI - C compiler that targets the Intel 8051, Maxim 80DS390, Zilog Z80 and the Motorola 68HC08 based MCUs. Work is in progress on supporting the Microchip PIC16 and PIC18 series. The entire source code for the compiler is distributed under GPL.

    Some of the features include:

    • ASXXXX and ASLINK, a Freeware, retargettable assembler and linker.
    • extensive MCU specific language extensions, allowing effective use of the underlying hardware.
    • a host of standard optimizations such as global sub expression elimination, loop optimizations (loop invariant, strength reduction of induction variables and loop reversing ), constant folding and propagation, copy propagation, dead code elimination and jump tables for 'switch' statements.
    • MCU specific optimisations, including a global register allocator.
    • adaptable MCU specific backend that should be well suited for other 8 bit MCUs
    • independent rule based peep hole optimizer.
    • a full range of data types: char (8 bits, 1 byte), short (16 bits, 2 bytes), int (16 bits, 2 bytes), long (32 bit, 4 bytes) and float (4 byte IEEE).
    • the ability to add inline assembler code anywhere in a function.
    • the ability to report on the complexity of a function to help decide what should be re-written in assembler.
    • a good selection of automated regression tests.

       gcc compiler is the best. Even most of the servers run on it\

    Wednesday, September 12, 2007 5:42 PM
  • Yes ...  I agree with ... hmmm ... It is better to to Use Turbo Compiler if you 'r a Newbie ... if you 'r familiar with C and mastered in C then it is better to use  VC++ ... B'coz it 's  easy to align , format n compile, execute a program

  • Hi! In all the work I have done till now in C/C++ I have liked only three compilers for it:-
    1) Turbo C++ Compiler : for general work related to Graphics in DOS mode, BorlandC special libraries like Conio.h and several relinquishing features of this great old compiler...
    2) BloodHound Dev Cpp Compiler: for all other general work as it provides a very handy interface and scroll support and in total a good experience (But only one problem, that its help is not as good as that of Turbo)
    3) BorlandC Compiler : a very good compiler for technical work as it provides a very detailed debugging environment all up to the assembely code for the program. But it proves all to difficult to newbies and general users.

    *Visual C++ Compiler is not such a good piece as its a very heavy piece of software and has no unique features....

    So, it all dependes on what level you are and what type of work you want!

    Cheers!

  • Hi Dear !

     Choice of te compiler is based on the requirements ! If you are a beginner in C Programming  , in addition you just planned to learn or to practice only the ANSI C then obviously you have to go for DOS based or command based C Compiler in such cases Turbo C provides a good platform to learn and to practice ANSI , Almost all the compilers availabale in market today will satisfy the norms of ANSI standards ! But our objevtive is to look for simpler one , in such cases Turbo C gets too many votes and Dev C++ holds 2nd in rating

    Thanks and Regards !

  •  

    The gcc compiler is best. mingw is also good. While gcc compiler runs best in linux, but for windows it's available.

    It's Dev-cpp. You can get it from here : http://www.bloodshed.net/dev/devcpp.html. Since i used windows most of the times, so i code using dev-cpp and since it offers both gcc and mingw. It's a boost. The ide is lightweight and very good.
