I have been searching on google a lot recently, but I have not been able to find a good C/C++ compiler for free, unlike www.python.org which has a free compiler opn their website. Thanks for any help or site names you have!

Bloodshed has Dev-C++. thats what i use. it very user friendly, and (most importantly) free. you can get it at http://www.bloodshed.net/download.html ...
\"Look, Doc, I spent last Tuesday watching fibers on my carpet. And the whole time I was watching my carpet, I was worrying that I, I might vomit. And the whole time, I was thinking, \"I\'m a grown man. I should know what goes on my head.\" And the more I thought about it... the more I realized that I should just blow my brains out and end it all. But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blowing my brains out... I start worrying about what that was going to do to my goddamn carpet. Okay, so, ah-he, that was a GOOD day, Doc. And, and I just want you to give me some pills and let me get on with my life. \" -Roy Waller

i recommend Dev-C++ too, like slick8790, it's very good and easy to use (and free!).

I've sample Dev-C++ aswell... depends what you need it for, if you're just getting started out on C, Borland's Turbo C++ helped me a lot... runs in a DOS shell [I had some issues with it under Win98SE back in the day...] but I found it worth while. It's been discontinued for a while so some issues may appear with compatibility/libraries, but as said, it's mainly aimed if you're considering intro level works.
There are a bunch of their older compilers there... anyway, good fortunes on your coding!

All these posts and nobody has mentioned GCC ... Shame on you!
http://gcc.gnu.org/install/binaries.html <---The defacto open source C/C++ compiler.

However gcc requires some other things for usage under Windows... depending on how far you'd be willing to go [Cygwin for example]

Haha I'm glad it was of help. Up until recently - where gcc does all the stuff for me - TC was my best buddy. Something to do with the Ctrl + F1 key combination
