i'm currently learning C++ and would like any information on any good compilers, any free ones?
There are a number of free compilers, ranging from command-line compilers top fully-fledged integrated development environments.
Your best bet is probably Microsoft Visual Studio Express Edition. This is free, surprisingly, but I am taking a guess that they probably released that to prevent home users illegally downloading Visual Studio 2003.
An alternative is Bloodshed Dev-C++, which is similar to Visual Studio but without the Microsoft Foundation Class and Active Template Library tools.
But there are lots. Have a look here for a list.
cheers for the list
is it free? links if possible
GCC is free. http://gcc.gnu.org/
If you really want to get into programming, Linux is the way to go.
[COLOR=royalblue]:cya: you can also check with any local University database so long as the site offers high end programming...you can usually find some decent GUI based programs with excellent compilers :D [/COLOR]
