Question C compiler

Yes, gcc is a C/C++ compiler (among other languages). There are many
variations of it, for various platforms and OSs, depending on what you want
to do with it. If you're using Windows 98, you'll either want to check out
DJGPP, a DOS port (www.delorie.com), or CygWin (www.cygwin.com), a Win32
port, or even LCC (which isn't actually gcc, but it's similar, and creates
Win32 programs as well - www.cs.virginia.edu/~lcc-win32).

Hope that helps,
Rudy
