Help on IDE selection
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.
