But isn't a compiler what you use to write source code?

You can write source code in any text-editing or word-processing program and then cut and paste it into a compiler, but most compilers come with their own text editors. Compiler text editors are geared specifically to the job of writing source code. They generally color the different program elements as in the "Hello,World!" example above. This lets programmers catch mistakes early and read their work more easily. Some compiler text editors also automatically indent or outdent lines according to standard C programming conventions.
