Programming compilers? Answered

Hi guys!

Well, I usually program using Microsoft's visual studio suite; however, I'm getting tired of my programs requiring the .net framework to run. Basically, I was wondering what compilers programmers use to write their programs. I really don't care what the language is, I have a fairly broad knowledge of programming languages, and I could always pick up another if need be. Anyway, could anyone point me out a few names of compilers? I would be very grateful. (Particularly if they were free)


Thanks!

I like " Real Basic " it is a visual program that makes really  small  exe files
that are flash drive stand alone transportable to any other PC and can
be compiled for the apple if you get the dual version.

Basically any non-trivial language can be used to write a compiler for itself....

.net programming is a very recent addtion to the pantheon of programming systems, before .net (and still in parallel with it) there are a vast number of alternatives to it !
Here are the first 5 I can think of.
Borland C++
Delphi
Fortran
C
The GCC compilers.
