What compiler do you use for C programming ?

C is a middle-level language because it is actually bind the gap between a machine level language and high-level languages. I am learning C programming. Its not so hard and also not so easy ! We will just need to understand the logic and I believe that mathematical knowledge always help to understand any kind of programming. So if you understand maths very well then you can be a good programmer. What compiler do you use for C programming ? However, for C programming I am using CodeBlocks (GNU Compiler). I also use Turbo C/C++. Turbo is an old and outdated compiler. I don't like this compiler. But at college we need to use Turbo !! However, but behind the college I always use CodeBlocks. Its easy to write programs with CodeBlocks and its my favorite ! What compiler do you use for C programming ?
I believe that there we have a lot of compiler for C. Let me know which one you are using. May be I will also try your favorite compiler.

I personally have started using the Visual Studio's C++ compiler. And it does allow you to run the C programs too. And the IDE seems to be a good option. You get all the feature of the Visual Studio. The best part of the visual studio is that it always updates itself to the latest standard of the C++. And for C also it works just fine with regular update.

Yeah, CodeBlocks is IDE and by default uses GCC compiler (you can still choose to use other compilers though). I think CodeBlocks is really good and easy to use when you're starting out.

I suggest you have a look at Microsoft's Visual Studio or Intel C++ compilers - those are probably the best in my opinion but it really depends.

Assuming the target environment is x86/x64 Windoze, any compiler should do, as long as it supports the latest standard C11 standard. I believe the GCC compiler supports this standard only partially. The Codeblocks IDE uses GCC by default. Microsoft says their Visual Studio supports it, but I'm certain they have their own interpretation of, as well as additions to the standard.

On Linux x86/x64 and AIX, IBM says the new standard is fully implemented in their XL C/C++ compilers.

GCC compiler coupled with Codeblocks, but I don't code in C that much. I remained with this configuration since I got used to it from my high school days. Visual Basic is probably much more functional and easier on the eyes but I don't want to adjust to a new IDE quite yet.

A compiler is a program that converts C code into executable machine code. Powerful and student-friendly version of an
industry standard compiler. A free, permissively licensed front-end using a LLVM backend. GNU/Linux, MinGW or mingw-w64 (Windows), Unix, OS X.
