Question Programming in C (Please)

I am really a NEWBIE!

I have Red Hat 8 distro, and I would like to know if there's a C compiler included with my packages. If not i would like to know which one can i download.

I used to work on Turbo C for Window$, is there someone similar and easy to use ?

Please Help me on that... !!

Forget TCC, you want to use gcc - that is the industry standard. Literally, everything you will ever compile on Linux will assume you are using it.

Go to the add/remove programs, and install the development tools. Then you will have gcc installed. No worries!

it's a really good IDE. It keeps things
very simple and works very similar to
Borland's IDEs.

kdevelop is good to.

If you come from windows programming, may the force be with you, and I found Qt designer quite easy for GUI programming (probably because it's the most similar thing to visual basic as far as i know, which is what I used before, but it's c++ not c)

to compile a standard c program, use gcc, to compile a c++ program, use g++.

If you like TC's IDE (console style)
look at these two :)
