If you mean the preferred compiler *for use with R*, it is g++ from the
preferred suite described in README.packages. In case you didn't
understand, gcc is the Gnu Compiler Collection, C, C++, Fortran (and in
some bundles Java).
We also prefer standard email formatting, with line breaks.

In the documentation it appears that VC++ is recommended, but in some posts I have seen statements that claim VC++ is not recommended. I have a DEV C++ IDE, but I would like to borrow from the experience of others if possible.
