How to use Quincy 2005 to write, compile and run C programs

Quincy is freeware open-source. It is a simple programming environment for C/C++ on Windows. It contains an editor, a compiler, a debugger, and graphics and GUI toolkits.

I found it appealing as it supports Windows 7 and Windows 8, which some of other C compilers (like old Turbo C) do not support.

Al Stevens originally produced Quincy to accompany a C++ tutorial book and as a project for the C Programming column of Dr. Dobb's Journal.

Quincy is named after Al Stevens' daughter's cat.
