The Borland free command line tools are pretty good.

Doesn't come with a IDE but this can be download off the net.

main()
{
puts("hello world guess who is writing a c program");
return(0);
}

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

main() should contain a full prototype. The puts() function is declared in <stdio.h>. Try the following instead.

#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
    puts("hello world.");
    return 0;
}

For free and to use with AutoIt I would definitely recommend Bloodshed's Dev C++. It is free, and it allows compilation of AutoIt. Now if you want to pay then get Visual C++ as that is the other compiler that is used with AutoIt.

Just get the GNU GCC compiler! :oops:

It's cross-platform, and therefore better than Borland's...

I haven't tried DevC++, but don't download the Visual Studio 2005 Express Beta because it's .NET-only! :mad2:

BTW: Does DevC++ have a GUI designer? :P

EDIT: DevC++ uses GNU GCC ;)

Visual Studio is for VB programs. Look at Visual C++ instead. EE2005Beta isn't that bad actually, I was first introduced to it at one of the MSDN conferences, pretty neat actually

Visual Studio has Visual Basic and Visual C...also can be .Net depending on the version. Different editions can have included Visual J# and Visio etc.

Visual Studio is a packaged suite of Microsoft languages.
