well i have been programming in c for around 3 months and actually i have tried to work with DEVC++ in the first two months but after learning about pointers i begin using them in my programs but...after playing with pointers i found that DEV C++ starts to show me some strange errors like dependency ERROR i thought it's a linker error so i started using the new version of DEVc++ but nothing changes so i tried another compiler the turbo c compiler but actually i didn't know how to work with more than one source file
some people told me that i should try microsoft visual c++ 6.0 but actually it didn't work too
any way plz guys tell me

Both are equal.

I would suggest you probably have an error in the code rather than the problem in the compiler. You can share your errorneous code we can discuss on that.
