Hi,

Just wondering if Borland C++ Compiler version 5.5 (http://dn.codegear.com/article/20633) works for C language also?

If not, can u plz refer me with a similar free C compiler?


Thanx

This free IDE is for C and C++

http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html

And yes, that compiler you're asking about does do regular C

ok I downloaded Bloodsheed Dev C++

I am trying to run this code


#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
printf("\n");
printf("Hello World");
printf("\n");
}



It compiles ok, and a DOS screen comes for a few milliseconds and disappears.

Why is this hapenning? And How/Where do I see the output?

Sorry, I am new to C.


Thanx

because the window will close as soon as the code is done. i don't know about c but in c++ you use cin.get(); which pauses the script and waits for the user to press any key

Also, in c++ you can also use: system("PAUSE");

yes but that is os dependent and not to standards
