Where do I download GCC compiler for C

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

So I am getting around to programming in C, and to run it in Eclipse I need to install GCC as a compiler, and I have been searching for the download link for a long time. I tried looking it up, and looking around the website, but no luck.
Can someone direct me to the download?
Thanks and Cheers!

If you want to start programming in C on Windows, the easiest way to get started is with the Community Edition of Visual Studio, which is free to download from Microsoft: visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/ No gcc or eclipse required.


gcc.gnu.org/ Has both c++ and c compilers. If you are on linux or mac, most of the time are already installed.

Check if is on path:

gcc - v
