Pelles C is a free compiler system for the Windows operating system written by Pelle Orinius. It has a complete development kit for Windows and the Pocket PC and contains many features that a programmer will find useful. There is an optimizing C compiler, a linker, a resource compiler, a message compiler, a make utility and install builders.

Resources are grouped according to topic: 

Generally only files that are essential to make the projects are included in the example zip files..

The integrated development environment (IDE) is a joy to use, it has project management, a sophisticated debugger, source code editor and resource editors for dialogs, menus, string tables, accelerator tables, bitmaps, icons, cursors, animated cursors, animation videos (AVI's without sound), versions and XP manifests. Also in the latest beta version the IDE manages multiple projects in the same workspace much like MSVC and other compiler systems. 

Users can also add features to the IDE by programming add-ins. These add-ins are DLL's that the IDE loads on startup and can add custom functionality.
