Please see README.1ST and the DJGPP FAQ for a list of the various
utilities included in DJGPP, which features not only the GNU C compiler
(GCC) but many UNIX-like tools.

GCC is itself a command-line compiler, as explained in the basic
documents. However, DJGPP optionally includes two alternative IDE's
(Integrated Development Environments): Emacs and RHIDE.

While I prefer Emacs myself, I've heard that many people prefer RHIDE, and
they're both great free programs.

In fact, you could write your C programs with any ASCII text editor, but
RHIDE and Emacs have special features to help with compiling and
correcting errors in your code.

Most respectfully,
