I recently started learning c++and i just want to know which is world best compiler for c/c++.
For education: Borland C++ builder
Dev c++ for console applications
Easy, GCC! I use it for all my c and c++ needs.
Hey. I'm tacking C classes too. They make me use gcc.
Here's a link for the download:
If you're using windows, go ahead and grab MinGW
Console or Plain Codes, use visual studio. The best IDE there is for me. For the GUI, if you want to still use native code, use borland(For faster process as you can drag and drop controls), then just reference your vs-created dlls. If you dont mind using .net gui, you can use vs all the way.
How do you quantify best? Fastest? Smallest compiled executable? Lowest memory usage when running your app? Really the answer depends on what you app is doing.
If you want a straight answer then the Intel compiler. It hamstrings AMD processors though by not using SSE instructions on them, just on Intel chips.
EDIT - Do you really mean what is the best IDE?
if you want a compiler for c++, we use microsoft visual studio in my University. I tried it and it's way better than others.
Microsoft Visual Studio. When you're proficient enough, you can switch to MinGW.
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
I think 2011/12 is out the beta
Yeah you can try Dev c++....Its a better platform for c/c++
Knowledge of GCC/G++ toolchain will help you a lot in your programming life. For very quick things in ANSI C, you can try Tiny C Compiler (TCC) by Fabrice Bellard.
Use Dev C++ it's simple, liteweight and works great !!
Why do you all keep recommending IDE's while he is asking for a compiler?
Because OP didn't say what OS he uses...
if you want console application go for Dev c++
You can go for Dev C++.
For compiler GCC is the winner hands down. For windows environment MingW...
IDE: Eclipse CDT -- OR -- Code::Blocks.
It's only ever gotta be Mingw
