What compiler to use with Notepad++?
Hi there, I just fell in love with notepad++ 2.6. (Great program, text editor, supports dozens of programming languages, folding, colour markings and printing with them, line numbers, et cetera). It just gets annoying that I can't decide what single compiler to use with it as it really is just an editor, you can't build anything with it. Anyone aware of some easy, small builders? Or am I forced to use bigger stuff?

(SharpDevelop, tried that too, all-in-one, but I just love NotePad++... http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm )

Thanks.

I'd try Dev-C++ if i were you.

Google it.

I've had it already a long time ago.

... but then I'd face the which-program-to-use dilemma again. Aren't there any programs which only compile, build?

Why not use an IDE? Personally I couldn't live without autocomplete.

Grab MINGW (MINimalist Gnu for Windows), a GNU (free) compiler.

http://www.mingw.org

Direct download: http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/MinG...1.exe?download

Just type: "gcc myprogram.c -o myprogram.exe" to compile a C program. Replace gcc with g++ for C++ programs. It can use Visual C++ libraries.

I prefer Dev-C++ myself (Dev-C++ is an IDE that comes packaged with MinGW). There's also MinGW Developer Studio (IDE for MinGW).

I use MSVC++ 7.1, and it's very nice, but very expensive. I have a legal version of it that I won, but I never bothered to install over my corperate edition with it.

I think he means, how to compile a C# program with MiniGW.

Re: What compiler to use with Notepad++?
Should I also explain how to compile a Java, Pascal, Fortran and Cobol program with MinGW?

Okay, okay... can it compile C#?

Not that I know of. C# is relatively new, and up until recently, was a Microsoft thing. There are two projects that I heard of (Mono and DotGnu) that compile C#, but they are relatively new.

It also doesn't compile Pascal, Cobol, BASIC, Java or Fortran either.
