Actual C compiler for Windows for free

<< < (11/13) > >>

SiliconWizard:
wxWidgets is IMO the closest to looking "native" than most other cross-platform libraries, and the licensing is nicer (again IMO) than Qt's. And as Nominal pointed out, it's not just looking native but actually uses the native common dialogs and widgets when available.

Although looking close to native, Qt is different as Nominal said, and Qt apps are IME very recognizable. I can spot that an app uses Qt in a couple seconds.

To OP: You may try Pelles C Compiler, a complete C compiler/IDE/toolkit, in under 15 MBytes =)

Likewise, you can use a number of other free IDEs along with GCC. If you like the Visual Studio interface, you can use Visual Studio Code for instance.

Visual Studio can print your source files, Visual Studio Code can not.  I like VS Code, I use it all the time but I really hate having to open the file with another editor just to get a listing.

Ah, that's funny. I have VS Codium - mainly installed it to evaluate it, and occasionally to get a GUI frontend for GDB - it has an extension for that - but otherwise, I don't use it. Just checked and you're right, it doesn't support printing. Must be one of the few IDEs I've seen that did not!
