google eclipse, google mingw. don't use borland. It's sort of being maintained, but msvc and gcc are the top compilers at the moment.

Hi Joseph,
Could you show me where I can find these books, And the userguides of Eclipse and Borland?
I really don't know a lot about these.
Thank you very much,

Hi Jiang,
Nice to see you - and welcome to the list.
as for C, the best books I read (and heard) were "The C Programming
Language" by kernighan and Ritchie (the programmers who created C),
"Structured Programming" (or the equivalent title) and Designing
Algorithms in C. Personally, I recommend C++ or slightly modern ones,
as C++ builds on top of C (slightly different syntax and way of
writing things, but shares useful concepts).
As for IDE (Integrated Development Environment), for beginners, I
recommend writing your code in a text editor such as Notepad and using
a command line compiler such as Borland compiler. If you want a free
IDE, the best one the programmers on this list use are Eclipse and
Visual Studio Express (could you tell us under which OS you'll write
your programs in?).
Just for sake of intro: could you tell us more about yourself like how
you heard about this list, how did you get into programming (a
student, a programmer learning a new language, etc.) and what do you
wish to learn? That way, those who have your experience can understand
your situation and help you better.

Hi every one,

Can you give me some choice?
