Bloodshed Dev-C++ is a full-featured Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the C/C++ programming language. It uses Mingw port of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) as it's compiler. Dev-C++ can also be used in combination with Cygwin or any other GCC based compiler

Here you can download the lcc-win32 C compiler system. The system is self contained: you do not need anything else to get started programming in C in the Win32 environment. You get
1) Code generator (compiler, assembler, linker, resource compiler, librarian)
2) Integrated development environment with editor, debugger, make file generation, resource editor, etc.
3) User manual (approx 240 pages, Microsoft Word format), and technical documentation (approx 260 pages, same format).
All the binaries and the associated header files etc, are contained in an auto-installable executable that will create all the needed directory structure.
