    Free Compilers

    GNU C Compiler: The most famous and widely used at present. Primarly for Unix and Unix-like platforms.
    DJGPP: Port of the GNU development utilties to the Intel 32-bit platforms.
    Cygwin: This is an environment and a port of most GNU utilties including the GCC set to the Windows platform.
    MinGW: Minimalist GNU for Windows. Includes support for the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC).
    Turbo C: Remember Turbo C from Borland? Now it is available as a free download. Though it's a little out of date, it still is extremely usable.
    Borland C++ Builder: The compiler and command line tools are available as a free download.
    OpenWatcom Compilers: The original Watcom compilers are now available as open source software.
    Digital Mars C/C++ Compiler: Offshoot of the Zortech/Symantec C/C++ Compilers (probably it is the Zortech compiler re-incarnated). Touted as drop in replacements for the Symantec C/C++ compilers.
    lcc: Portable compiler for ANSI C.
    lcc-win32: Free for non-commerical use. Windows support with IDE, etc.
    Pelles C: Based on lcc. With IDE, etc for Windows platform.
    Ch: This is actually an interpreter. Standard edition is free.
    EiC: Extensible Interactive C. Another interpreter.
