A Beginner's Guide to Using Free/Open Source Software Development Tools and Environments for Programming on Modern Platforms

C/C++ Programming For Beginner

 or Turbo C/C++ can be a great development tool... if you want to study and create programs for legacy systems of the 1990's such as DOS. One of the most inconvenient features of using such tools, and most especially within source code developed, is the use of libraries that are incompatible with modern system (unless an emulator is used), most notably the use of conio.h, a C header file used in old MS-DOS compilers to create text user interfaces.

The programming construct inherit within the Borland/Turbo C/C++ compilers and libraries are not described in The C Programming Language book, and are not part of the C standard library (ISO/IEC 9899:1999 or ISO/IEC 9899:2011). Therefore, programs compiled with header files such as conio.h cannot be distributed to non-DOS systems or systems which do not conveniently provide an emulation of the DOS architecture.

However, if you want to learn how to develop production-quality applications and software, you must use development tools that are best suited for software development on and distribution to modern systems.

Compilers and Command-line Interface

As an alternative to using Turbo C/C++ or MSVC++ related integrated development environments, which can be costly depending on your needs, there are Free and Open Source tools that provide all the development functionality you'll need to learn and develop C/C++ applications for modern systems.

List of C Compilers

MinGW ("Minimalistic GNU for Windows")

A collection of freely available and freely distributable Windows specific header files and import libraries combined with GNU toolsets that allow one to produce native Windows programs that do not rely on any 3rd-party C runtime DLLs. Here, you'll find the fundamental development tools, including:

  • gcc (C compiler)
  • g++ (C++ compiler)
  • fortran (Fortran 90/95 compiler)
  • gpc (Pascal compiler)
  • ada (Ada compiler)
  • java (Java compiler)
  • objc (Objective-C compiler) mingw32-make (GNU make) gdb (GNU debugger)

MSYS (Minimal SYStem)

A Bourne Shell command line interpreter system. It serves as an alternative to Microsoft's cmd.exe, providing a general purpose command line environment, which is particularly suited to use with MinGW, for porting of many Open Source applications to the MS-Windows platform.

Learn how to download and install the necessary packages needed for developing Windows applications with MinGW and MSYS:

Tiny C Compiler

A very small and very fast C compiler which is specialized to generate very small executables. Although it implements C90 standard and supports a few C99 features but is a very effective and efficient compiler.
It can be downloaded from:

LCC (Local C Compiler or Little C Compiler)

Another open source but not a free C compiler which can be used without any charge for personal use. For commercial use, you have to pay. It is retargetable and written in C. There comes an IDE for it too, called LCC-Win32.
It can be downloaded from here (the C-tutorial found here is a good resource too):

 There would be many other compilers we may have missed out. I am attaching a list of sites I got by a google search for "list of c compilers":

Text Editors/Integrated Development Environments 

We're confident that you know what a text editor is. If you're using Windows, chances are you've used Notepad often. 

An Integrated or Interactive Development Environment (IDE) is software that provides a text editor for editing source code and tools for building, running, and debugging your programs.

For most IDE's, the functions of software compilation, execution, and source script interpretation are provided by separate applications that are installed on a system. For example, if you're compiling source code written in C using Code::Blocks, it will call a compiler (GCC for example) in the background to compile your program.

However, you don't really need an IDE to write and compile programs. You can write source code using virtually any text editor. Write your source code in a text editor, save it. Then open a terminal or command prompt, navigate to the location of your source code file, run the compiler on that file, and you now have a program!

(NOTE: Do not use word processors like MS Word, as they save your source code in weird formatting and not in plain text. Plain text editors are want you want).

A free C++ integrated development environment (IDE) built to meet the most demanding needs of its users. It is designed to be very extensible and fully configurable. A beneficial aspect to Code::Blocks is that it includes the GCC from MinGW.

Download Code:Blocks (codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe)

Orwell Dev-C++
This is a project that aims to continue the development of the Dev-C++  IDE. If you're still using version, it's time for an upgrade!

Geany is a text editor using the GTK2 toolkit with basic features of an integrated development environment. It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a few dependencies from other packages. It supports many filetypes and has some nice features. Geany only requires the GTK2 runtime libraries.

Some basic features of Geany:
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Code folding
  • Symbol name auto-completion
  • Construct completion/snippets

Turbo C++ for windows 8.1 64 bit

Turbo C++ for windows 8.1 64 bit
 Many colleges and universities (specially in INDIA) still use turbo c++ Compiler software to teach c/c++ language. But when it comes to newer operating systems like Windows 8 and windows 7 it won’t support. Reason is turbo c++ is 16 bit compiler and it runs perfect on old operating system like xp but having some compatibility issue with windows 8 and 7. There are many other compilers available for C language, like Code::Blocks , Dev C++ , Visual Studio , C-Free & etc  But most of the student use TC due to their curriculum.

Also Read: Top 5 best GUI based Turbo C/C++ Compiler alternatives

We can use DosBox to run TC on Win 8 and 7. But it is very complicated to configure DosBox to run turbo C .We have to type lot of mounting command code every time for just starting Turbo C, Also it is not fully supportable and We could not run graphic code and also it won’t work with 64 bit os. So we cannot able to work tc in newer operating systems. 

So here is solution for that, with the help of  C++ by YOGISOFT software. Now we can work on Turbo C fine in windows vista and 7 64 bit. C++ by YOGISOFT  design in a way that we don’t need to configure anything and it is one click installer .

Installation of this software is easy just follow the instructions. It’s like next-next-finish.

Now open the C++ by YOGISOFT from desktop shortcut.

Turbo C++ by yogisoft on windows 7


  • This Software Support both 32 bit and 64 bit and also 128 bit  os
  • Turbo C opens in Full Screen Mode.
  • Now you can run graphics code in windows 8 and windows 7
  • Automatic (no need to read and apply complicated DosBox tutorial to run C in full screen)
  • No need to write Mounting  commands on DosBox every time
  • Solved problem of "DosBox window close" when compile


  1. Use "CTRL + F9" for compile and run.
  2. Use Alt+X to restart by typing tc again.
  3. Use "End" Key for Instant Exit. 

Get it from CNET!
