any of you know where I can find a c compiler?

Check your local library. In Penn State's library were several books
containing C and C++ compilers. One had a CD-ROM but was checked out
the entire semester... Another had a DOS-based C compiler that fit onto
a single floppy... But the best thing about finding a compiler in a book
like that it's free. Also, that it has step-to-step instructions if
your C++ is a bit rusty :-) Usually it will mention "electronic media
included" if there's a CD-ROM or floppy included with it.

the book I got mine (Borland C++ 4.01) in (which don't seem to run the SDK
sample proggie *humph*) was $34.95, I think... was packaged more like
software, in a software store, but inside was a book about C, and included
on the CD-ROM was PDF's of another book on C++... Never got around to
reading too much of either... but I can do 'hello world' and probably
something a bit more complicated (like writing a little calculator proggie
maybe) without too much trouble.

I used to have borland 4... it was only win3.1 based (which at the time didn't
bother me cos i only had win3.1!) but that might explain the problems? I hate
to say it, but i definately like the "MS Visual" serries as far as usability
is concerned...

For those looking for a cheap C++ compiler... typically, you can get=
great
discounts by one of three ways:
(1) EDUCATIONAL DISCOUNT PRICES: Walk into educational bookstore=
near a
university, wearing student attire. Sometimes student ID even asked for.=

(2) COMPETITOR UPGRADES: Example trade in your old DOS/WIN Borla=
nd C+ (or
whate'er) towards MS VCC+ or even Dev Studio. (Not promoting anything he=
re...
just relaying factual example.) Check online sites for details.
(3) CONSIGNMENT SHOPS: Computer or book shops have decent finds.=
