In this tutorial we will talk about C compiler and understand what is compiler and how you can install CodeBlocks compiler to compile and run C programs.
In this series of C programming tutorial in Hindi, you will create, edit, compile and run many C programs but for all this you have to setup C compiler in your computer first.
You can also read: What is C language and how to learn?
What is Compiler?
As you must be aware that computer understands only machine language in which only binary format (1 and 0) is used but it is difficult for us to understand and code in machine language.
That’s why we use those programming languages to create computer programs whose format is human-readable like English language such as C, Java, Python etc.
When we code by following the rules and syntax of these programming languages, then we have to convert that code into machine code and for this we use compiler.
In simple words, a compiler is an application that converts our code into machine language so that the computer can understand our code and execute it.
Different compilers are available for most of the languages i.e. you cannot compile the code of Python or any other language with the compiler of C language.
There are many compilers available for C language as well. We will learn to install CodeBlocks IDE in this tutorial.
How to Download and Install CodeBlocks IDE (Compiler)?
The interface of CodeBlocks IDE is very user-friendly and lightweight. In this IDE you get GCC compiler which is the best compiler for C and C++ language.
Apart from this, you also get errors debugger in codeblocks which helps a lot in correcting the errors in your code. To download CodeBlocks you go to its official website.
From there you will download CodeBlocks with MinGW setup executable file according to the bit (32 or 64) of your Windows.
To download, as soon as you click on the link “SourceForge.net”, that website will open and within a few seconds the setup download of codeblocks will also start.
After the CodeBlocks is downloaded, you have to run (install) the setup file. Installation is very easy, you just have to do next…
Then again click next.
Now click on I Agree Button.
Now again click on next button.
Now click on Install button
Wait for a while…
After completely install the software. A dialog box will appear just like above image. Now if you want to run CodeBlock instinctually then click on Yes button otherwise click on the No button.
After this you will now see the home screen of CodeBlocks IDE.
So in this way you must have learned to install CodeBlocks. I hope that you have liked this post of mine. If you liked the post, then please share it with your friends and relatives and you can send your suggestion in the comment box below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
