Portable C Compiler and IDE ?

Recommended Posts

I am currently attending university and am being made to use the Cygwin environment ... i take files to and from class with a USB drive and keep on it a few nice utilities that i use. Is there a well known way to keep, like for example, Dev-C++, on the drive and have it working without installing ?

I believe a well known technique known as copying files may help here. But sarcasm aside, get Code::Blocks, which includes MinGW, and just use it. It runs on Windows and Linux.

You should be able to install Dev-Cpp to the flash drive and use it freely on any computer without a hitch. Well, at least on Windows platforms, I'm not sure if it'll work like that on Unix. Anyways, all you really need is to get a command line compiler and use any GUI program that can edit text files like that if the Dev-CPP does not work as it's supposed to. What problem are you having right now? Or are you just asking first and haven't tried anything yet?
