    I'm in search of a multi-platform development environment (IDE) for C/C++
    I'm new to C programming and I need a good start to begin my C adventure

    What do you suggest?

    Thanks a lot

    Well Dev-C++ is labeled C++ but it can actually compile C aswell you just have to make sure you name your source code correctly and include the correct header files. For example for C source code "nameofprogram.c" then just compile and execute and your gtg.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm checking Dev-C++ and Code::Blocks

    Code::Blocks seems more up to dated and offer more options. Compilation of little sources just went fine at the first test. I had few problems debugging but maybe it is me that need to better enter into IDE philosophy.

    I will see.

    I would recommend using CodeLite IDE , a less known IDE for C/C++ but, IMO, the best so far.
