C compiler for Linux


Can someone recommend a good C compiler for Linux Mint? I'd like to get back into C.

Linux Mint already has gcc. You can code C programs and then compile them with gcc.

sudo apt-get install gcc g++

I.e. : g++, the c++ compiler, will also install
packages / files, that make gcc work fully.
