    Greets HrGod!

    I presume you will be programming using Microsoft Windows, which indicates to me that you are also interested in avoiding using Makefiles and similar powerful command line utilities

    The compiler that is recommended where I am working for Windows programming is the Intel C++ compiler plugged into Microsoft Visual Studio. Since you mention price is not a problem for you you should be able to afford both of these items. The Intel C++ compiler is highly compliant with the ISO standard and very highly optimising and performing for Intel CPUs and many people I know are happy to use the Visual Studio environment which it integrates with.

    Outside of this, I believe you should be able to progress far with GCC and Dev-C++ . Also, by using GCC you will be very confident that your code will be portable and not limited to a single platform.

    that is dumb.

    why would a C program be cross platform simply because you use a cross platform compiler?


    hi there........

    astonishingly enough - they are compilers

    GCC is the open source C compiler that most BSD and linux systems come equipped with
    intel C++ has a free personal licesne available as far as I know.
