I'm wanting to start learning C and I'm trying to find a good compiler. So far i've found alot of C++ compilers and I'm not sure if it would let me write code in just C. I've downladed Visual C++ 2010 express, but the interface is kind of confusing me. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good compiler for a beginning programmer.
Visual C++ should be acceptable for a beginner. A Visual C++ project has a collection of files associated with it, which are "source" and "header" files. The program's main function should go in a "source" file.

A beginner should start with an win32 console application (check "empty project"). You can create it from the wizard. Then you may add source file for your main function right clicking on the "Source Files" folder. Select .c or .cpp file.
