    Get a C compiler for your target processor.

    If ti's PIC you're getting into, Sourceboost has a free IDE and ANSI 'C' compiler that will support 12, 16 and 18 series chips. There are some limitations to the free version, but it's not expensive to buy if you exceed those limitations.

    The common step for ALL C programmers is frustration!

    Do you know C? Or any other programming language? Do you know about microcontrollers?

    Also, as BillO hinted, which microcontroller are you planning to use?
    Are you attending a class, or do you plan on learning on your own, as I did?

    There are many, many uCs made by many companies. My opinion, if you are learning on your own, is an Arduino board. It's like training wheels on a bicycle. You'll get a (protected) taste of C, after which you can go on to more extensive compilers.
