Well, your presence on this page shows that you are finding a perfect compiler for C and C++ to run all those programs that you have written in C and C++. So, always thinking for an IDE in order to run a specific programming language becomes tough when you have a low-end PC and you are a conscious programmer. While talking about the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for C/C++, there are lots of options like Visual Studio, Code::Blocks, Dev-C++, Eclipse, etc. But these IDEs run very slow on low-end PC. So, if you are thinking of an alternative for this, then you need to develop your own environment for  C/C++. Therefore, stay with us to install the compiler on your machine. Before that, you must know that there are lots of compilers like Intel C++ Compiler, GNU Compiler, Dev C++, Borland C++, Clang, Visual C++ Compiler, MinGW, and C Compiler.
