Compilation on Linux/Unix based Operating System using best c / c++ compiler

Steps for compilation using gcc/g++ compiler:
best c / c++ compiler

  1. GCC is a pre installed compiler in most of the Linux/Unix based O.S , check via: gcc –version or g++ –version.
  2. If it is not already installed , install it using apt-get command
    sudo  apt-get install gcc
    sudo apt-get install g++
  3. Write your code using any text editor for example : vi-editor or g-edit (Don’t use #include<conio.h> and getch())   and save it as buffercode.c or buffercode.cpp .
  4. Open your terminal and type
       gcc -o output buffercode.c
    or   g++ -o output buffercode.cpp
  5. Now run your program on terminal using
      ./output
  6. All is done 😉

Compilation on Windows using gcc/g++

  1. Download Mingw and install it by double click on exe file.
  2. Set Environment variable/path for compilation using your cmd.
    go to C drive(Or where it is installed) –>MINGW –>bin and copy it’s path
  3. Open Control Panel –> System –> environment variables(on the left side) –> path
    paste their your copied path.
  4. Write your code using Notepad or Notepad++ and save it as buffercode.c or buffercode.cpp (Don’t use #include<conio.h> and getch())
  5. Open your cmd
    Press Window(button) + R and type cmd in run
  6. Go to your file directory using cd command where your c program is saved.
    mine is D://program/buffercode.c
    cd d:
    cd program
  7. Open your terminal and type
    gcc -o output buffercode.c
    or   g++ -o output buffercode.cpp
  8. Now run your program on terminal using
    ./output
  9. All is done 😉

Compilation using CodeBlock

  1. Install gcc using above steps either on linux or windows.
  2. Install codeblock and integrate it .with gcc.
  3. Write your code ,compile it and execute it.

You can use gcc with several other softwares and applications. Even you can run your code on your android device too using your best C/C++ compiler , off-course it is gcc.

Window users can also go with VS(Visual studio )
