What is a good compiler for learning C?
Name: Channon Quillen

Which C language program is the best for a beginner? Some are
telling me Borland Turbo C++. I have a book by Herbert Schildt called "Teach
Yourself C". I have had previous experience in C programming in college (and
BASIC or course), but I have pretty much forgotten most of it (it was my last
semester, Party, Party, Party and then some). Any suggestions would be
Borland C is how I started. I found it pretty easy. Learn C first
then go on to C++ if you plan on large programming projects where the
advantages of Object Oriented Programming become important.
I think that the type of compiler is less important than a good
ext. The only thing I would really consider important in choosing a compiler
package is the debugger, esp. for C!
True, true. Another consideration is ANSI standard code,
depending on your applications.
