    Hi,
    I have been wondering, what compiler for C would you suggest for programming things like games and puzzles. Also, what would be the best language.
    Thanks,
    Levi

    If you are asking for compiler I would suggest gcc which can be downloaded at http://gcc.gnu.org/

    Also one of the best Compilers can be found at
    http://www.borland.com/products/downloads/download_cbuilder.html#

    If you really want to develop games and puzzles I would say not to hunt for a compiler but you should go with opengl library which you can get hold of it and use within Microsoft Visual Studio to develop programs using OpenGL. OpenGL library can be found at http://www.opengl.org/

    Thanks

    yes, youre right, Opengl would be the best. Did you mean the Visual Studio.Net? If not what did you mean.
    Thanks

    I meant Visual Studio 6.0 and specially Visual C++ 6.0 to Write, compile and run the program.

    Thanks, would it be fine to just get the Visual C++ 6.0 instead of the whole Visual Studio 6.0. Would it restrict me in creating opengl(and other) C++ apllications.

    Visual Studio is not necessary just Visual C++ 6.0 is more than enough.

    Hi,
    What is the difference between the Visual Studio 6.0, and the Visual Studio.net version. Is there a reason that 6.0 is better. Thanks.

    I see no similarity.
    Which one is better can be compared when there is a common ground to compare them, I guess what your requirements are both can handle them but doing with Visual C++ 6.0 is preferred because thats a standard compiler on Win version for the time being.

    just to chip in the discussion ... if you want the code to be ANSI complaint .. gnu version of the compiler is the best .. though you might not get great looking IDEs to work on ...
