I use pelles c http://www.smorgasbordet.com/pellesc/ (its free)

the style and layout (especially preprocessor) is very close to msvs so it was an easy for me, before i used msvs 6.0, i don't really like msvs .net

Minimum: 500 megs

Egads, man, and I thought Emacs was bloated!

For much less space, you could download a real compiler. Smile

I said no.
It's been a while since I coded C (it just feels weird to code HLLs now.. I think out programs in assembly). But back then, there were much better compilers than those microsoft ones. Main one I used was GCC (using the mingw port). It's smaller, and caused me less problems than VC6 (which I used for a week or two).

I guess its more taste, but deffinetly try out GCC (mingw) if you havent yet, its a very nice C/C++ compiler (and also has other languages if you really want, like java, ada..).

borlands Turbo interfaces in DOS were great. I am now using MS Visual C/C++ because of IDE & MSDN it has.

I voted no.
Its a good IDE, but not really worth the bloat.

pellesc seem to be a better option if you dont need C++.

If you do then there is mingw, or better DevCPP (wich uses mingw but has an ide and a debugger).

Well, 19k is the complete download with compiler, documentation, source code and examples. The compiler itself is 799 bytes. But it also has some kind of code optimization, reports syntax errors and warnings and understands Unix as well as Windows bf programs. I suppose "your" bf compiler is capable of none of this. Hence the differences in size - and I wouldn't call reporting of syntax errors bloat Wink
