Which Compiler for Study.com's Programming in C????
#1
Smile 
Based on some previous posts it looks like I should avoid Dev C++ (which is too bad because I like the IDE).

Any idea what compiler the graders at Study.com typically use?

Would the best/safest bet be GCC? If so can anyone also recommend a lightweight IDE? By "lightweight" I mean anything that is faster and less of a memory hog than Visual Studio  Smile

I used visual studio code for my C++ projects at a local cc, but you can also use an online compiler for free.

That looks cool but it does not appear (after a quick look) to produce a .EXE/Binary that can be downloaded. It seems more like an online C/C++ interpreter that outputs to a console window.  

Back in the day I used this online compiler to get a binary. http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/compile/
It is outdated now and only runs in DOS protected mode.

I would just like a standalone C compiler with a quick/small IDE (windows compatible).

Oh in C. My bad. I glance over things too quickly lol. At Temple, I used putty and nano. I forget what we used to compile everything though.

Actually, I don't think it matters because C code can run in C++ but not the other way around.

Anyways, I use Atom editor. I hear there is an add-on gpp compiler. I'm not sure about how lightweight it is.

SubC is something my friend recommended.

EDIT: I've never used it so I can't really say anything about it.

Thanks for the reply, most people will just say use a C++ compiler to compile a C program. I have seen a few threads where people have used Dev C++ and Study.com reported back compilation error messages and warnings. I guess I am at the mercy of what ever compiler the Study.com grader is using. I think I am going to take Merlin's advice in another thread and use GCC. I am open to suggestions on an IDE to go with it.

You might like Visual Studio Code. It's Open Source, light weight, and available on Windows, Mac or Linux. You can use it with either the Microsoft or GCC compilers. For a class, I'd probably go with GCC and simple hand made make files and just use VS Code as an editor.

Thanks for the recommendation, I am going to give that a try as my editor.

I'm pretty sure that the evaluators use GCC in both instances, so I ended up using GCC/C++ (technically LLVM/clang) for both my SL C++ and SDC C Programming courses and didn't have any problems.

Both are free and easy to set up as well. I use a Mac so the compiler is native, but I'd set up a virtual machine running Linux if I were going to do this on my Windows PC.

The vm running linux on a windows box is a good idea. 
Would downloading Dev C++  and replacing the old Mingw with a more current build be reasonable?
