Which C compiler is the best

Postby MadDonna » Tue Sep 21, 2004 1:10 pm

Hello,

A question, wich C ide/compiler is the best to use?

I like programming in C and I do that for a couple of years now, and I want to know your opinion.

I didn't tried yet, i'm still coding with GFA on STE, but i think about switching to C/C++ because it's my favorite coding langage.

I'm going to try Gnu GCC, it's a modern C/C++/ASM compiler, i think it's one of the best and it was ported to TOS.

Anyway, Turbo C seems a good choice ;)

Edit :
I'm wrong (memory leaks), Pure C seems a good choice, not Turbo C ;)
step 1: introduce bug, step 2: fix bug, step 3: goto step 1.

I voted for Turbo-C - however, I am using "Pure C" (by ASH) on the Atari, you forgot to mention it iin the voting list, it is the successor of Turbo-C and has newer libraries etc.
Pure-C compiles very fast and generates very fast code!
Before I switched to Pure-C, I was using Sozobon-C which is a nice and small freeware C compiler for the Atari.
I also tried GCC, but it compiles too slow and needs too much memory on my Falcon.

Pure C is based on Borland C and a little newer and more stable.
Lattice C is even in the latest version 5.06 (i guess) not really what one call stable, so allways "save" before "run".
But i like it nevertheless, since it has a simple IDE to use.

As far as i know pure c is still copyrighted.
If not, please give a note.

A little outdated in comparison to others (Like Lattice C 5), but IMHO Laser C is by far the best one. I have no experience with the german only ones (like Turbo C) though.
