    or Builder

    Well I got a Beginning in C book, but I only got Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition. Would that work? Or is there a place to download C compiler or Builder

    Yes, that'll compile it for you, unless you specifically mean C (and not C++).

    If you do, then try gcc:

    http://gcc.gnu.org/


    EDIT: meh. You'll probably need Cygwin or MingGW or something to run gcc. Or get a Linux/UNIX distro, which will be a much better environment to learn C (or C++) in anyway. :D

    If you would have read the first line in the link he gave you, you would have seen that it's a C/C++ compiler. The '/' means "and" in this case.

    P.S. What makes you want to learn C over C++ or C#? (Just curious)
