Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video Obtaining a compiler and an IDE, part of Learning C (2014).
- The good news is that all the tools you need…to begin your programming journey…are found free on the internet, the bad news being…that you have to find the right tools…and install them properly.…This is not an issue for you here because, in this movie,…I'll show you how it's done.…You'll see how to find a good IDE,…or Integrated Development Environment,…a C language compiler, and get everything set up…and configured for using this course.…You'll find a horde of IDEs on the Internet.…Microsoft offers the Visual Studio as its IDE,…and Apple has Xcode.…
You're welcome to use those tools,…especially if you're comfortable with them.…But for this course, I've chosen the Code::Blocks IDE.…The thing I like about Code::Blocks is…that it comes with everything you need.…Unlike other IDEs, you don't have to hunt for this or that…after the IDE is installed.…You basically download, configure, and you're ready to go.…Obtain Code::Blocks by visiting the developer's website,…codeblocks.org.…Point your favorite web browser or Internet Explorer…
