Help!
I am looking for a C compiler to plug in to Elipse.
Any information volunteered would be helpful.
C is a procedural language like Fortran ,right and Objective-C is object-orientated ?
regards

There are no "C compilers to plug in to Eclipse" but there is CDT, which integrates Eclipse with your external C/C++ compiler. I.e., you still need to get a compiler even if you download CDT... Some alternatives to consider for a C/C++ compiler include (I assume you're running Windows, on Unix/Linux you already have GCC) MinGW and Cygwin which include the legendary GCC compiler. You could also try LCC-Win32 but I have no idea whether you can use it with CDT.
C is a procedural language, right? And Objective-C is object-orientated?

Yes, C is a procedural language, and yes, Objective-C is an object-oriented language. However, Objective-C (developed by Apple, I believe) is not as popular as C++ (developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at AT&T).

Thanks Lasse.
Any idea what function atoi() is ?
OK , it's a function to convert an ASCII string to an integer.
I've got a warning message on compiling my code in LCC-WIN32 :-
missing prototype for atoi()
OK, included stdlib.h.
