Installation of C

C - Installation

Installation of C : There are many compilers available for c and c++. You need to download any one. We will tell you two methods of installing C .

Now, we are going to use Turbo C++. It will work for both C and C++.
To install the Turbo C software, you need to follow following steps.

1) Download Turbo C++ software

You can download turbo c++ from many sites. Download Turbo C++


2) Create turboc directory in c drive and extract the tc3.zip

Now, you need to create a new directory turboc inside the c: drive. Now extract the tc3.zip file in c:\truboc directory.


3) Double click on the install.exe file and follow steps

Now, click on the install icon located inside the c:\turboc
And then ,It will ask you to install c or not, press enter to install.
Change your drive to c, press c.


Press enter, it will look inside the c:\turboc directory for the required files.

Select Start installation by the down arrow key then press enter.

Now C is installed, press enter to read documentation or close the software.


4) Click on the tc application located inside c:\TC\BIN

Now double click on the tc icon located in c:\TC\BIN directory to write the c program

In windows 7 or window 8, it will show a dialog block to ignore and close the application because fullscreen mode is not supported. Click on Ignore button.

Now it will showing following console.


Another Way of Installation of C

 You need the following two software tools available on your computer,
 
(a) Text Editor
(b) The C Compiler.

Text Editor

This will be used to type your program. Examples of few a editors include Windows Notepad, OS Edit command, Brief, Epsilon, EMACS, and vim or vi.

The name and version of text editors can vary on different operating systems. For example, Notepad will be used on Windows, and vim or vi can be used on windows as well as on Linux or UNIX.

The files you create with your editor are called the source files and they contain the program source codes. The source files for C programs are typically named with the extension “.c“.

Before starting your programming, make sure you have one text editor in place and you have enough experience to write a computer program, save it in a file, compile it and finally execute it.


The C Compiler

The source code written in source file is the human readable source for your program. It needs to be “compiled”, into machine language so that your CPU can actually execute the program as per the instructions given.

The compiler compiles the source codes into final executable programs. The most frequently used and free available compiler is the GNU C/C++ compiler, otherwise you can have compilers either from HP or Solaris if you have the respective operating systems.

The following section explains how to install GNU C/C++ compiler on various OS. We keep mentioning C/C++ together because GNU gcc compiler works for both C and C++ programming languages.


Installation of C on Windows

To install GCC on Windows, you need to install MinGW. To install MinGW, go to the MinGW homepage, www.migw.org and follow the link to the MinGW download page. Download the latest version of the MinGW installation program, which should be named MinGW-<version>.exe.

While installing Min GW, at a minimum, you must install gcc-core, gcc-g++, binutils, and the MinGW runtime, but you may wish to install more.

Add the bin subdirectory of your MinGW installation to your PATH environment variable, so that you can specify these tools on the command line by their simple names.

After the installation is complete, you will be able to run gcc, g++, ar, ranlib, dlltool, and several other GNU tools from the Windows command line.
