Dev-C++ is a free, fully functional integrated development environment (IDE) distributed under the GNU General Public License for programming in C and C++. It was originally developed by Colin Laplace and was first published in 1998. It is written in Delphi. It comes with and uses MinGV or the 64-bit TDM-GCC port of GCC as a compiler. Dev-C++ can also be used with Cygwin or other GCC-based compilers.
An additional aspect of Dev-C++ is the use of DevPaks: a set of extensions for programming environments with additional libraries, templates, and utilities. DevPacks often include but are not limited to, GUI utilities, including popular tools like GTK+, VC widgets, and FLTK. Other DevPacks include libraries to use more advanced features.
Dev-C++ users can download additional libraries or code packages that extend the scope and functionality of Dev-C++, such as graphics, compression, animation, sound support, etc. Users can create DevPacks for free and host them on the site. It’s also not limited to use with Dev-C++ – the site states that “a typical Deepak will work with any MinGV distribution (with any IDE for MinGW)”.
