    GCC is the GNU C/C++ compiler and is the de facto standard for Un*x (-like) systems. It's Open Source... CL, IIRC, is part of MS's Visual C++ package..

    They're both used to compile/build C/C++ source code into executables.

    gcc.gnu.org ?
    Also, you may want to look around you for a programming course.

    what does the following mean?

    "You will need to have working knowledge of C/C++ : GCC or CL compilers"

    i'm gonna take a stab in the dark, you're interested in the code4bill project that microsoft is offering to students in india... what they mean by that statement is that you will need a fairly advanced/intermediate at minimum knowledge of c/c++ using either gcc, the gnu compiler collection or cl, the microsoft command line compiler from vs.

    well, i do have a gud workin knowledge of the C/C++.

    what they want is, the workin knowledge of c/c++ using GCC n CL. Is that what u want to say?

    then, this means that they require programming to be done in the Vc++, am i right?

    But, I only hav worked in the Turbo C/c++ and the K-Develop in the Linux.
    For, getting used to VC++ in this case, can u provide me with stuff, which will make grasp it quickly. I searched at Google and also browsed the links provided above, but they all started in elementary manner.

    So what I want is a tutorial or any kinda information, which will tell me the basic differences between the Turbo c/c++ and Visual c/c++, so that I can make myself cope up with the requirements of the Code4Bill.
